World-class Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie recently had a star-struck moment recently when she met Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka. The two living legends posed in a photo which she shared on her social media page.
The 41-year-old Nigerian novelist was all smiles as posed with the legendary author. Adichie also showered Soyinka with encomium, reflecting her deep admiration for the 84-year-old playwright. In her post, she described him as a guiding light and showed appreciation for his essence.
Many social media users have likened the photo to a special one which shows that great things can emerge from Nigeria.
Interestingly, Chimamanda recently bagged a Mary McCarthy award. A prestigious award only won before now by notable foreign authors such as Margaret Atwood (the author of The Handmaid’s Tale), Zadie Smith, Mona Simpson, and Susan Sontag.
