Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie - Literary Evening 2013 - August 2013 - BellaNaija 026

Award winning Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was recently celebrated at the 2013 Literary Evening in Lagos.

The event organised by the Farafina Trust, took place at the Lagos Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos. A few participants at the event were awarded certificates of participation.

I recently just started reading her best selling novel “Half of a Yellow Sun” and I must say it’s really good. (Yeah, I know I am really late).

At the event, Chimamanda sizzled as never before in a pretty orange dress. She styled her knee length frock with gold earrings and a pair of black heels.

Her stunning look was completed with smokey eyes, light orange lipstisk and a high bun.

      The Ankara material is not African and this is not a new discovery. Ankara itself has it’s roots in Dutch wax-print fabrics. Yes Dutch not African. Ankara is the capital of Turkey and the origin of the cheap Ankara material that sold in West African countries back in the day. This cheap Ankara is a derivative of the Dutch Wax Based Fabric. It is called Ankara because the cheap Ankara originated from Ankara City in Turkey. West African bespoke artisans adopted this fabric of the Dutch and Turks. It was the high preferences and tastes of African women in this material that popularized the Ankara Material and its usage on the continent.

    Abi o! Why didn’t she wear Ankara and gels, mshewwwww….ehn, she looks lovely, but she should stop criticising everything western as and when it suits her

    • Lucylink

      Na wa o. I didn’t know weave constitutes everything western. Talk about overreacting.

      I’m beginning to think Nigerians think upside down. This is why I’m an advocate of introducing Critical Thinking as a topic or subject in reading and comprehension in Nigerian schools. So the message you got out of Chimamanda’s speeches and interviews is ‘criticism of everything Western’? Yes every African intellectual I know of question and critique certain Western influences on African consciousness. I would advise you to do the same and find youself as an African, if you are. Now that is not a reason to pose them as anti ‘everything’ Western. I think such interviews should be censored 21 and above. Seems they are too ambiguous for the general puerile populace to understand, otherwise we shouldn’t be seeing inferior and silly comments like ‘why is she not in Ankara or she’s criticizing everything Western’.

    I would’ve preferred if the dress was floor length or knee length…this middle ground doesn’t do it for me…looks clumsy. Awesome hair n makeup though.

    It’s only in Nigeria that a writer of literary fiction can suddenly become a fashion icon or a ‘celebrity’. Bella Naija, I’m very disappointed. Kindly focus on Chimamanda’s intellect, not her looks. She is not in showbiz. She is one of Nigeria’s greatest thinkers and icons. Please don’t trivialize her accomplishments by talking about her ‘style’. Focus on her intellect and her world acclaimed writing. Thank you.

      Exactly!!! She is a writer for Christ sake…i would prefer having people like her (having brains and such an achiever) not having style than all those air heads we call celebrities and think have style( Tonto and co).

      Don’t u castigate my gurl Chimamanda on here or I’m sure gon go Chimamandas on u BN

      I wonder o. Why focus on her look not the purpose of the event? If she were male that wouldn’t even come up.

      thank a lot dear…the truth is that d so called fashionistas in nigeria try to hard and end up looking messy.there are very few original stylish celebs in nigeria..chimamanda actually look way better than most of them and i really love naturalist
