Remarks by Dr. Wangui wa Goro (Chair of the Pius Adesanmi Prize for Excellence in African Writing)
Remarks from Pius Adesanmi Prize for Excellence in African Writing 2019 Winner

Keynote by: Professor Funmi Olonisakin (King's College, London)

Moderator: Dr. Mshai Mwangola (African Leadership Centre)

Prize plaque was made by Stephen Allotey.
Stephen Allotey was born in Jamestown, Accra. Allotey is a sculptor and a painter which portraiture and figure has been his interest, inspiration and focus and he has continued to study through a strong foundation in drawing. Through the exploration of the language of the human face, he has been able to capture exaggerated facial expressions, subtle gesture and the expression of emotions and attitudes to thus encapsulate and portray varying aspects of the human condition. One admirable feature of Allotey's work is his deliberate intention to distort and still attain resemblance. His main medium of expression is clay which he models in the presence of keen-eyed audience without any stress or tension whatsoever. Stephen Allotey is inspired by nature and the heroic in mankind and animals which he is moved to express the vitality, beauty, grace and strength of their portraits in their varied shapes, sizes, abilities and functions.
