Media personality, Tosin Odunfa claims he was the young man who told Wole Soyinka to get up from his seat on flight, and reveals the reason behind his action below:

I am the young guy! Yes the one in question with a baseball cap and t-shirt. I am unashamed to be at the prime of my youth infact I blushed a little bit after reading your decription of my chest and muscles. Is thanks to strong discipline that I live a fit life and I am able to go to the gym on my tight schedule. Prof didnt mind getting up and infact he confided in me as we chatted later on the flight that he would have done the same and that he was more embarrassed by the undue attention. Prof and I actually have a few things in common, we are both in academia, I have a PhD in electrical engineering and teach nano electromagnetic theory at the University of Mannittawiw.

He said to me that he thinks that Nigerian youth need to stand up more for themselves than we do and he spoke to me about the ideals they tried to promote when he cofounded a secret society in his youth . I have read up on him now and know for sure that Wole Soyinka is a great man but I sadly was not taught about him in school. We exchanged contact information and I will certainly stay in touch. Please note that I am on the Autism spectrum and need the view from the window to keep me from getting sick on the plane hence my insisting on taking the window seat. Finally, Brother Tonye the words on your lap are very inspiring "Everything you want is on the other side of not giving up.

 Tosin Odunfa claims he has autism which means he had to sit beside the window, which was what he booked and the professor had no issue with his request, however, other Nigerians like Tonye Cole, Mo Abudu and Kate Henshaw were the ones preaching respect and placing curse of the young man for asking an older man to get up from his seat, what a way to blackmail!

Can any of those fools vacate their houses, because one old man from the moon wants to live there.
Has any of them ever given his car key to any old man or woman, because they are trekking and needed a ride.
