Soyinka twist: Odunfa says not the ‘rude’ man, just playing pranks

Wole Soyinka and the disrespectful young man in face cap

Lanre Babalola

Tosin Odunfa, the fellow who posed as the young man who ordered Nobel laureate Professor Wole Soyinka to move out of his seat on a plane has denied being the impudent young man.

Odunfa who works at EbonyTV made this clarification on his twitter handle: TVTosin @TosinOdunfa some hours ago.

He said he was just trying to create a plausible scenario on why the youths must rise up and defend their future from the ageing-patriarchal society that doesn’t know the damage it is doing to their future.

Read his tweet below and the reactions of some Nigerians to his prank:

The real #bobofine ‘s character was assassinated without trial. He needed a fall guy and I volunteered through #Satire and I created a #PlausibleScenario todrive home my point. #JeSuisBobofine #IamBobofine #YouareBobofine #WeAreAllBobofine #YouthandWomenArise pic.twitter.com/wdTLYWqPDu

The story was meant to help drive home the point that Youth have to rise up to realize that there is a clear and present threat to their future by an ageing-patriarchal society that doesn’t know the damage it is doing to our future. Women are at risk too. #YouthandWomenArise

Tosin Odunfa Said it in his page that he isn't the guy. He only created a scenario. We cannot all swallow everything we see in the media when we're not Americans.

The University of Mannittawiw doesn't exist. He didn't sit close to Wole Soyinka. He studied chemical engineering. pic.twitter.com/QgPrVB1FYZ

Uncle jimi, the said reaction has been found to be false. The said guy, Tosin Odunfa works with Ebony Tv and he has come out to say he was only creating a scenerio. Besides, no Uni bears that name. Attached are some twitter screenshots. pic.twitter.com/QkPmGO1NMG

If I didn’t know Tosin Odunfa, I would have at least googled ‘University of Mannittawiw’. It hurts to see supposed media platforms run with every social media post as news. It is a disgusting disgrace

LOL, Tosin Odunfa that I know is a pleasant media personality who works at EbonyLife TV. There’s no way that Tosin Odunfa doesn’t know about Wole Soyinka like this comment on Tonye Cole’s post says. Lol pic.twitter.com/CxFTrsAxaA

Meanwhile, the search for the young man in the encounter with Wole Soyinka continues. He is yet to identify himself and many Nigerians want to know him
