    I have read the book over and over again! The casting on my mind. Olanna – Genevieve/ Omoni Oboli !I prefer Omoni Oboli though, she will nail the sweetness and beauty imagery to the wall! As for Kainene, a number of strong naija actresses come to mind but we gat none as ugly as who Chimamanda described in Kainene!

    Olanna as described in the book 1) LIGHT-SKINNED ( she had skin the color of ‘rain- drenched earth’, also her ex-bf Mohammed’s mother told her ‘not to let the sun spoil her beautiful skin’).
    2) CURVY- with the body of a real african woman
    4) SWEET-MaNNered, Gentle and soft spoken
    5) BEAUTIFUL- infact, Ms Adebayo said she was ‘illogically pretty’ and ugwu described her as a ‘goddess’

    The top 3 nigerian actresses that fit the bill are:
    1) Monalisa Chinda
    2) Stella Damasus
    3) Omotola jalade (though she would have to learn igbo).

    Kainene on the other hand was:
    1) Dark-skinned
    2) Thin, flat-chested and gaunt
    3) Also speaks igbo fluently
    4) Aggressive, bitchy and sarcastic
    5) Not so pretty

    Top nigerian actresses to play the part:
    1) Genevieve (though she’s too pretty, but she plays the bitch to perfection)
    2) Kate henshaw ( a little too old for the role and wld have to learn igbo)
