According to BBC, Wole Soyinka revealed that he used an advanced technology, ‘Proton Therapy’ to treat it. After undergoing

successful treatments, the 85-year old is in good health.

The nobel winner, Soyinka said it was an easy ride although rather uncomfortable.

He said “It hadn’t yet gotten to the stage where it was non-reversible and so (the doctor) gave us a number of guidelines. I say us

because he wanted to make sure that my wife made sure that I followed it. He sensed that I wasn’t going to be a very good

patient. So he spoke to her most of the time rather than me,” he said.

”There is no disease in the world any human being needs to be ashamed.

I don’t see why people need to go to Canada, Europe to receive treatment which is affordable in this nation, it is a shame.

”The options I compared to other treatment I know about and I have seen in operation. Mine for me was an easy ride,

uncomfortable in many ways but it is painless.”
