Following the death of Nelson Mandela in 2013, Prof. Wole Soyinka wrote and recited the poem you now see in the video below in Mandela's honour.
No, He Said applauds Nelson Mandela's towering courage in the fight against apartheid and racial inequality in South Africa. The poem also celebrates the rare and exceptional leadership qualities of Mandela who refused to be freed as long as some of his comrades remained in detention.
