We won’t give up on our hope for Professor Ngugi Wa Thiong’o to win Nobel Prize in Literature 2018. It’s been a hit and miss situation ever since 2010. This year, can he finally get the honour he deserves?
The Nobel Prize in Literature is annually awarded by the Swedish Academy and presented by the King of Sweden. Alfred Nobel, the founder of Nobel Prizes, described the award recipient as “the person who shall have produced in the field of literature the most outstanding work in an ideal direction.”
Like every year, the 2018 Nobel Prizes ceremony will also be held on the 10th of December. The date is to commemorate the death anniversary of Alfred Nobel. Coming back to the matter at hand, what do the Nobel Prize in Literature 2018 betting odds say about Ngugi Wa Thiong’o as the winner?
Nothing Can Stop Ngugi Wa Thiong’o from Writing
Ngugi Wa Thiong’o, originally from Kenya, is currently a distinguished professor at the University of Calfornia. We are in awe of Professor Ngugi’s dedication to writing even when he got locked up for doing it. In 1977, his play containing a political message got him imprisoned. Nevertheless, he still continued writing a novel in prison. Since, the professor has written countless pieces of influential literature including ‘Decolonising the Mind’ and ‘Weep Not, Child.’
According to online gambling sites in Sweden, the odds for Ngugi Wa Thiong’o to win Nobel Prize in Literature 2018 are the highest at 5/1. It’s true that he has been the bookies’ favourite to win the literature prize since 2010. However, professor Ngugi has yet to be a Nobel laureate. Even the news media are outraged about the Nobel Committee’s decision. Being the humble person that he is, professor Ngugi revealed that a Nobel Prize in Literature would be validating but not essential to him.
