Chimamanda: Inspiration to aspiring writers Published on THE NATION August 22, 2014 Written by Uzoaganobi Ebuka. An average Nigeria reader must have read one of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s books or at least heard of her and her numerous awards. Aspiring writers, however, who have not read and appreciated Adichie’s writing skills have either not made their career choices out of passion or are not serious about their career. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is unarguably the foremost female Nigerian writer and the youngest most influential Nigerian author of our time. This internationally acclaimed young wordsmith has authored three awe- inspiring novels, and counting; first, in 2003, she came out with “Purple Hibiscus”. While the masterpiece was still making waves and fetching her fame and accolades, she re-surfaced even stronger in 2006 with “Half of a Yellow Sun”, whose screen adaptation viewership was recently approved by the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB). In 2013, she released her th ...

Stephen Akuma wrote: BREAKING THE SIEGE MENTALITY OF THE IGBOS: THE BUILDING STORY OF THE BIAFRAN WAR When Chinua Achebe released his book – “There was a country”, the painful old wounds of the civil war resurfaced, leading to the exchange of verbal fire between young Nigerians on social and print media. War of words and furious pens replaced the 1967 to 1970 gun barrels. Achebe’s book began with an Igbo proverb: “A man who does not know where the rain began to beat him cannot say where he dried his body”. He went further to talk about Africa and the 1885 Berlin colonial boundaries. He emphasized that the book is his own personal story of the war. Two years after the book was released, coupled with the death of the Author, the furious nerves began to cease and the ethnic war of belligerence and attrition subsided. Then suddenly like the release of the molten magma, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie released her movie “Half of a Yellow Sun”; this came after her unsuccessful attempt to convince Afric ...
I think Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a brilliant woman! I love how people like her have been able to attract younger generations to African literature. I earnestly believe that we are on the cusp of the The African Renaissance. It's so exciting to see my peers and role models ignite with revolutionary business ideas that will cause African nations to overcome the current challenges confronting the continent and achieve cultural, scientific, and economic renewal! Viva Africa!
It was Africa day yesterday. I've lived in Kenya for a year and a bit. With all the fears of living here, it has been magical. I have made some amazing friends.

I am enchanted by the hummingbirds in my little garden. I have read some wonderful books. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Yvonne Adhiambo Owour, I am their groupie. Absolutely. I have signed on some amazing writing. Evocative and exciting. Jess de Boer, Abdi Latif Ega and Vaishnavi Rammohan they are fabulous. I have learnt how the music industry in Africa works. Eric Wainaina, Maia and Taio, amazing. And the sky. Acacia trees. Bees. Warm, fun loving people. Storymoja Hay Festival and Kwani Trust, food for the soul.

Between the Lines: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie with Zadie Smith by Schomburg Center on Livestream -
Something awesome happened in New York last night: literature goddesses Zadie Smith and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie united in feminist power and rose into the heavens … but before they did, the pair sat down for a long chat at Harlem's Schomburg Center.
Since I've started this group -highly inspired by Teresona Iversen- I am going to take the lead in suggesting an starting point. I know we are busy with work and love (not me, but I have enough with work, trust me), so we can't do many books at a time. Therefore, I suggest monthly topics. There are so many issues going on out there at the moment that it's a difficult task to pick just one. I guess you've noticed the Democratic party we are living in Europe atm with the EP Elections coming on the next 25th May ( thought I was talking about Eurovision, uhm? My naughty ones). However, the world doesn't stop there...Therefore, I would like us to be greedy and go for two topics to start with. - European Borders, Democracy, Crisis, Identity and Citizenship - Africa We can do this two ways: Fiction, Social realism, and Newspapers and Magazines. Let's get started! My fiction contribution for this month in the African topic is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's "Americanah". So this is how it goes: I will post com ...
