Ayikwei Armah was born in 1939 in Takoradi. He was a brilliant Ghanaian novelist and a spokesman of African history and identity. Armah’s first novel The Beautiful Ones Are Not Yet Born was published in 1968. The novel deals with postcolonial life in Ghana under the power of Kwame Nkrumah. Armah is influenced by Frantz Fanon. He has taken the predicament of Africa in general, particularly Ghana. In this novel, Ghananan society stinks with corruption and it is filled with filth and dirtiness.

Armah’s The Beautiful Ones Are Not Yet Born and Ngugi’s Patels of Blood and Matigari present the corrupt political condition that prevails in the post independent rather post capitalistic Ghana and Kenya. The individual is the product of the social, cultural and political concerns of the country. If the political scene of the land is corrupt, it mangles the social and personal life of the individual. Armah portrays how the individual struggles against the corrupt political and social conditions that exist in the native soil Ghana in the post independence period. The anger that Armah cherishes against the society has resulted in the filthy picture.
