The Management of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has authorized their students in the English Department to begin the study of Kofi Kinata’s ‘Things Fall Apart’ song from this semester.
According to a post from the social media pages of KNUST, the song will be studied by the level 200 students of the English Department for the first semester of the 2021 /2022 academic year.
