The Iroko Has Fallen! A Great Man has gone to the great beyond. Achebe has made his mark, and because him, the world doesn't see Africa the same again. Africans don't see themselves the same way again.
He brought pride into African culture, he will be so missed.
The pride of writing.
The man that wrote a Bible on Corruption.
Things have fallen apart but Things Fall Apart & its siblings Stands A Part Of Reference when we talk on Corruption.
Africa and indeed the world has lost a great literary great! Adieu the great Chinua Achebe!
though I did not have the privilege of meeting you prof, you contributed greatly to my appreciation of literature. LIVE ON PROF.

A great man has gone
You have passed on to immortality Sir. You will forever live in our hearts.
To tell a child to hold on fast to what he has is a mark of approval that he is going the right way. Things fall apart. Your books brought smiles and healed a troubled generation. you were a seer, a griot and a storyteller. rest well with the gods.
RIP the literary Iroko of our time.
Things have indeed fallen apart! the centre can no longer hold. Nigeria and indeed the entire world has lost a legend, a pace setter and an elder. I join his family, the people of Nigeria and the entire literary world to mourn this great son of Nigeria who has solidly imprinted his foot prints on the sands of time. rest in peace Sir!!!
You left your footprint in the sand of time. RIP the great Iroko tree, Prof. Chinua Achebe.
The Iroko has indeed fallen. Sleep on Achebe, your legacy lives on. R.I.P
Chinualumogu Nna m, Okosisi mmuta, jee nke oma… ka udo nke Chineke, Nwa ya bu Jesu na Muo nso diri gi mgbe niile, amen.
Things Fall Apart was the first book about Africa, from an African I had ever read. It transformed my view of the continent and changed how I saw the Manifest Destiny of Imperialism. It took courage to write and relay tales different than the conversation of the era. Achebe was a great man, with a great heart. We need more like him. Right now, things fall apart, the center cannot hold…
Anya Igbo ji ahu uzo anaa! Adieu the great Achebe,you live in our hearts.
The Iroko tree of african literature has fallen,though you may be gone,but your works will never be gone from our hearts and book shelves…Adieu great man!
Chinua Achebe a man of Honour, u will Forever b Remembered
Greatest writer and tutor ever. Live forever in the bosom of God.The literary community is missing you already.
Papa I which am in the position to say no to death or plead on your behaves but is not possible good. Gift to africa rest in peace papa
Rest in peace
Goodbye odogwu nwoke,
just like that, a big fish departed from the ocean, a big tree has fell in the forest.an icon of africa literature has gone.but your works are alive for generations to learn.
A great man indeed has gone to rest. Yout legacy lives on! sleep well, great one!
You captured our history and culture with literal but true words and because of you we appreciate who we are and where we come from as Africans and most especially as Nigerians. We indeed have lost a rare literary genius. Adieu Prof history will always be fair to you
Without an iota of doubt, Achebe is a literary prophet not just an icon. He is probably the greatest African writer who ever lived. His latest highly controversial book which probably kept him alive still his death is nothing but another cap to his feather. But, I wont forget the truth he never told in the book and that is the religious colouration idea he- as Biafran envoy sold to the international community about the Biafran war.
The great icon…you left an enduring Legacy.
Adieu Prof. Chinualumogu Achebe
A great vacuum has been created! May God grant Prof. eternal rest. Amen!
Though you are no more but your legacy lives on. RIP Prof. Chinua Achebe!
you lived and died as a man of honuor. Good bye and rest in peace.
Many times I have trebly tried to pour pampered.
Metaphors to your breathing gourd, Countless times.
I dare not summon my gaze to eye upon the labyrinth.
of your enlarging whirling enchantments.
Many times I have come to your flowery lettered square,
Clutching creels of freshly chopped Adjectives, hoping.
To lace your far flung glittering footprints, when the beat.
Pauses for another breath of your palm-oiled proverbs….
Many times I have shivered at the rapturous storm,
Your wordless stare stirs across the gathered hills.
of their petrified Cromwells, Countless times, I bring ululation.
Yet my moisten words dry upon my rehearsed lips.
Who am I to gather words of you? Achebe! Named
Name of the hitherto unnamed plains of geminating voices!
Pantheon patron of the celestial celeriac of many thundering-
Until you warmly held my gasping soul and whispered:
It is not the size of the offering.
That the gods feast on but the size.
of the feast in a man’s offering!
And it is this veneration again I anxiously bring-
Indigenous pathfinder of the panthers of many black inks,
Black Pope of the sacred conclave of word-weavers,
Native thunder of the confraternity of many voyagers!
Lend me a shade of the shadow of your speaking ear-
I bring words, freshly gathered and neatly arranged,
From the smoked lungs of my oily tattered Niger Delta.
They say men come with their hand behind their backs.
When they visit you- I come likewise, to say greetings. Greetings
To grand puppeteer of the acclaimed metaphor-masquerades!
Sail well, father- for even the spirits, will marvel at your gait!
rip my mentor role model n achiever truly onye nnukwu ana go
He has left his marks on the sounds of time and his writings are there to guide the next generation on what he thought that the Nigerian Nation should be especially on leadership. A man of rare integrity and uprightness. Rather than saying RIP, I will just celebrate him because he still lives on. When they say some men don’t actually die, he is indeed one of them.
Heroes don't die. They live forever in books and in the hearts of millions, forever!
He may have left the world bu his words in our mind is ever green.
Yes i m interested on this registry
Nigeria and Africa have lost a great man
His fame rested on solid grounds round the world. He was a man who came fully made and captured the world with his enormous wealth of wisdom. Although not given the award of a Nobel Laurette, his works stands out.
We have really lost a treasure. A man who came FULLY made.
His fame rested on solid widely acclaimed notion of the world and still stands the test of time. A man who came fully made, left us with much wealth of his wisdom to always look and draw out wisdom. His works speaks volume.
Thank you for gifting the world with the talent, the genius and the inspiration that was you, Chinualumogu Achebe. Thank you for enriching the world and using your talent to the full. You have indeed died empty having poured yourself into all of us and your legacy will forever be remembered. God bless you. Rest in perfect peace in the bosom of our Lord. Indeed, Albert Chinualumogu Achebe, yours was a Life well Lived.
Indeed life is a burning candle that is destined to burn out. Chinua Achebe’s candle burned with a glowing flame that lit many candles while it lasted. Adieu, gallant touch.
Professor Achebe paved the way for us all. Torch bearer, Hero, man, Legend. Rest in peace Old man.
A great giant has fallen I fear for Nigeria, a country with so many unsung heroes is gradually becoming a country with no hero. Achebe, you live on in our hearts, your deeds and your works. Rest in the arms of the Lord
A man who cannot tell where the rain started biting him, he cannot also tell where it dried on his body…THERE WAS A COUNTRY. You are the' LITERARY ICON' that the Biafrans and Nigeria at large will live to not forget for years to come. You brought out my fears for the Igbos and my secret agitations about the marginalization of the IGBOS in your book, THERE WAS A COUNTRY..MY PERSONAL PERCEPTION OF BIAFRA. I call you the PROPHET outside the pulpit.La n'ndokwa onye udo.
Though you have gone the way of mortals, but your spirit lives on until all the issues you raised and fought for are addressed and tackled.
His works inspired my ever glowing passion and desire for literature, truly, " when an elder is in the house, the she goat will not surfer the pains of parturition". Adieu Baba.
Adieu! Chinua Achebe. – 'A man of the People', shouting 'Beware Soul Brother', In the 'Anthills of the Savannah', 'There was a Country', an 'Image of Africa', as 'Part of the African Trilogy", following 'Dead Men's Path', to know 'How the Leopard got his claws' with 'Hopes and Impediments' at 'Home and Exile' seeing 'Chike and the River' and an 'Arrow of God to cause the 'Winds of change' where 'Girls are at war' is the 'Trouble with Nigeria' that is 'No longer at Ease' as 'Things fall Apart" because the centre cannot hold.
Achebe has passed on to the great beyond. As the “Trouble with Nigeria” fetters and “Things Fall Apart”, I hope to experience a change because we are “No Longer at Ease”.
Our thoughts are with those you inspire daily, especially in these dark ages…we wish that our light, no matter how little ; will shine so BRIGHT! Long live Achebe.
What shall we say? The whole world has said it all. You came to show us the way, the inert power of our imagination and how much we can influence our world with what we have. You're a hero that lives on, one to be remembered for hope , that though our world may not be all that we dream it to be, there's hope, hope against hope; because you lived in it, and despite it, you conquered. Chinua Achebe, rest in peace in the bosom of our Lord.
Encountered him first through his book “Things Fall Apart”, in the year 1982. Then, heard first hand in the year 1997; when he delivered the lead paper in Odenigbo lecture series. Came away with a deep impression made on me: I met a great man, a stoic man, a man of his people, a humanist, a positivist, an orator. A lover of all things Good.
Your good work will continue to live in our hearts. Rest in Peace.
And while many a man weep today the reading generation know you live on in those books you have left as bequest even to generations unborn. I hug the thought of you in my heart as you yet remain an inspiration to young writers like me. Adieu!
“If you do not like my story, write yours”…
Your name will always be on the tongues of men.
A great iroko has fallen.Your footsteps are imprinted in the sands of time. Nna anyi, naba na ndokwa. Jee nke oma.

He had one of the most unique Igbo names I ever had.

samsung do DVR recorders that will do exactly what you want. they record to a hard disc and you then burn to dvd also can be networked. theyre really expensive. £400 +. go onto gardiners securities web site. Best option would be to call them and talk to a sales person and theyll recomend what to buy. Other than that contact a security installation company and get some body to come and give you a quote. what you asking seems like quite a big job to undertake with no experience. hope this helped
