US-based Nigerian author and feminist icon, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has shared her regret in not choosing to be a U.S citizen when she had the chance in the past.
While speaking in a recent chat with popular media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on on Bounce Radio, she revealed how Nigeria frustrates.
According to her,
“She’s Nigerian but Nigeria deeply frustrates her. She came to the immediate realization that she doesn’t have to be a dutiful daughter or citizen despite wanting to share in the average experience of an average Nigerian. She made the choice of not being a US citizen which she deeply regrets.”
She went further to say that she’s waiting for President Trump to leave office before she can apply to be a US citizen.
However, the Award-winning Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, has taken a swipe at Nigerian feminists. Chimamanda in a viral video interview warned Nigerian feminists to stop using feminism to justify their wickedness.
According to her, some young Nigerian ladies in the name of feminism sound really mean and ‘nasty’ which is not the aim of feminism.
Chimamanda said: “I say to young Nigerian feminists – please do not use feminism to justify your wickedness.
“Sometimes, I see some of these young ladies and when talking to them, they sound really mean, and I say to them this isn’t feminism; you’re just being nasty.”
Feminism in the world today aims to combat gender inequality and oppression of women in the society.
