HOW WOLE SOYINKA TRIED TO SAVE FEMI SEGUN

Polyglot Femi  Segun is gone-and his family and friend are still in shock and encapsulated in mourning-but unknown to many, Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole must have had a premonition that something bad may happen if the fun-loving  and easy going gentleman continues to ride his power bike.

We have gathered that Segun who was knocked down while he was cruising on his back in Lekki area of Lagos had reportedly visited the Literary giant on one occasion and when Soyinka saw Femi’s means of transportation he was alarmed.

Soyinka was said to have exclaimed in Yoruba “Iwo Boy yi, se ofe pa ara re ni” (This boy do you want to kill yourself?). After the exchanges, Soyinka insisted that Femi was not going to leave his house w on the Biike and handed him the keys to an SUV.

Friends said they had seen Femi driving the SUV around town but the son of the legendary writer, Mabel Segun still enjoyed the feel of his Bike till death came calling

The late Segun who had a daughter with Yeni Kuti is survived by a loving wife who is a Lagos Magistrate and children. He will be buried today after a solemn service at Pastor Ituah Ighodalo’s Christ Church.
