For news about the announcement on the 2010 Caine Prize for African writing, the story on the BBC news website does say most of it.
Why does it matter who wins?
Well, it is a prestigious prize, and let’s face it, £10,000 is not an amount to be sneezed at!
Also, if the past is any way a predictor of the future, the winner is likely to become a well-known writer and representative of the African continent.
So Ayikoo to Olufemi Terry, and we look forward to reading more of his work.
