ETISALAT PRIZE FOR LITERATURE 2015 WINNER IS ……

Winner, Fiston Mujila holding out his award plaque
I am certain that by now everyone around the literary world is aware that the Congolese writer, Fiston Mwanza Mujila author of Tram 83 won the coveted Etisalat Prize for Literature yesterday in an evening filled with laughter, music, poetry and just a complete mix of the arts. Our very own Kuti Ojuolape Modupe took home the Flash Fiction prize and boy does she deserve the award(who knows we could get an exclusive with her soon).
Really hoped to be there but was too exhausted from grooving all evening at the Afropolitan Vibes show held on Friday, March 18, 2016 at Freedom Park.(will bring pictures later).
 Meanwhile enjoy the event captured in a couple of pictures.
