Africa: The Caine Prize and Unintended Consequences: A Response

Emmanuel Iduma responds to Nigerian writer and critic, Ikhide Ikheloa’s essay “Email from America: The Caine Prize and Unintended Consequences”: “The essay which one website described as ” Wainainaesque” after Binyavanga Wainaina’s satirical “How to Write About Africa” and together with Chimamanda Adichie’s “The danger of a single story”, is fast becoming the third part of a trilogy of African intellectual criticism of Western literary imposition.”
