Book on Shonibare – ‘…Legend of all Times’ for presentation

A book, S.O SHONIBARE – LEGEND OF ALL TIMES, is due for public presentation on Thursday, January 8, 2015. The biography project on the life and times of Samuel Olatunbosun Shonibare, international business man, technocrat, politician, statesman and founding member of the Action Group was written by award winning writers, Peju Akande and Toni Kan with a foreword by Otunba Subomi Balogun.

Commissioned by the Shonibare family to commemorate the 50th year anniversary of the death of their patriarch at 44 in 1964, the book is a comprehensive examination of Shonibare’s humble provenance, his ascent to the pinnacle of his career at UAC, his foray into politics as one of the seven founding members of the Action Group, alongside Obafemi Awolowo, his unique partnership with his wife and his emergence as the first international businessman Nigeria has ever seen.
