Who says Guy Kawasaki is the Father of Evangelism Marketing?

Guy Kawasaki, the chief evangelist of Canva and former chief evangelist of Apple Computer is regarded to be the father of evangelism marketing and I should be laughing out aloud, because it must be a joke. I don't even have to beg to disagree with that. The fact is, it is not true.

What is Evangelism Marketing?
If Evangelism marketing is an advanced form of word-of-mouth marketing (WOMM) in which companies develop customers who believe so strongly in a particular product or service that they freely try to convince others to buy and use it, then evangelism marketing was started in Africa where word of mouth is loudest!

The Environment that Made Prof. Wole Soyinka a Great Writer

Your environment affects your development in life. And the first black Nobel Laureate in Literature, Prof. Wole Soyinka is an example of this which he clearly documented in his autobiography Ake The Years of Childhood, now adapted for a movie,
Bola Abass analyses how Soyinka's family background and environment contributed to his development.

«"Wole Soyinka is the only African writer who is well known to the public in the West. A film adaptation of his childhood narrative is a very big pie to dip one's hand in"»
~ Fiona Ledger, BBC World Service, London

Appropriate gift development depends so much on the environment one was born and raised in. This is the basis of the heredity and environment argument. If Professor Soyinka was born in a remote area, and perhaps didn’t go to school, one wonders what he would have become. Soyinka was born in Abeokuta. His father, Samuel Ayodele Soyinka (whom he called S.A. or “Essay”), was an Anglican…
