Kole Omotosho (born April 1943) is a Nigerian writer known for his dedication and commitment to fusing a socio-political re-appraisal of Africa and respect for human dignity into most of his works. He grew up during the rising tide of radical nationalism and was enamored by the potential that lay in the future of the country. However, with the ascent of social and political decay, a few years after independence, Kole became deeply interested in writing about fiction. Fiction was an avenue that exist apart from the decay of real life and where deep re-constructions about life and ideas comes true. It was also an avenue to experiment on social and political ideas for societal change and advancement.
