Jesuferanmi Igbinigie, Winlade Isreal, and Funmilayo Obasa has emerged winners of the maiden Punocracy Prize for Satire writing competition.

According to the ediors, the grand prize-winning entry, Igbinigie’s When You Speak of Africa, was a really good entry that strikes at the heart of the satirical.


Let the Good Works Continue authored by the first runner-up, Winlade Isreal, was noted to have used “effective ironic subversions that offer a witty and funny sense of the state of things in Nigerian politics”. “Creatively fascinating,” the second judge said about it. “The speech format adopted shows a very distinct element of creativity.”

Coming third place, Obasa’s Because You are Alive was said to be a “good work with a solid gendered argument”. “A pretty brilliant, unpretentiously feminist intervention. Good prose,” another juror remarked.
