Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie strikes a Pose with Nieces Behind her Project #WearNigerian



Ever since Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie kicked off her project #WearNigerian, we have come to know and love the stylish side of the author.

Have you ever wondered who runs her Instagram page? Wonder no more as she has shared a photo with her nieces Kamsi, Chisom and Amaka who are the brains and beauties behind the #WearNigerian campaign

She captioned the photo:

My brilliant, kind, funny, lovely nieces who select and post my Project Wear Nigerian photos here, 16-year-old Kamsi and 20-year-old twins Chisom and Amaka.
And me feeling seriously among.

    The yellow trouser needs ironing, seriously. For the girls, they look way older than 20 and 16.

    Family first ! Chimamanda has great family values. I love that. I also admire how she is keeping it in the family and helping to support her nieces. It is really great to see how she is using her platform to further the business and ‘political” experiences of her nieces. I guess this would prepare them for their own career paths.

    Chimamanda looks younger than they look and to think she is double her age. These young women need to chill and take it easy with the growing up!

    They all look great. 16 years old of today look older that’s just how it is. Then add make up and hair.
    I love the outfits as well

    How do I say this without sounding like a hater.

    None of the clothes fit these girls.

    We need to teach our daughters that rather than following trends, great fashion comes from loving and understanding their bodies and personalities and wearing clothes that allow them shine forth.

    Me I don’t like what they’re wearing oh but I applaud aunty Chimamanda for what she’s doing for her nieces.

    These are what healthy, emancipated, cluedup young ladies look like. Please stop comparing them to the emaciated, carb loaded,clueless, no original idea (cept its copied verbatim of instagram) common sense range of a tiny teaspoon, looking for a man to save them, oppressed bushitas from your village.

    Chimamanda actually looks younger than her nieces. They look way older than they are. Maybe it’s the makeup. Young ladies should deal gently with makeup and allow their young tender skins breathe and stay fresh. Makeup is literally an enemy to the skin.

    These girls look old? How!!!!!!?. They just look powerful the sort not to be messed with. Honestly the way some women dress you can never really take them seriously. I love the yellow outfit and darling looks harvard style uber cute in that green and black assemble. I see chidi is setting the right example for her nieces. Its refreshing to see intelligent style NOT inspired by the Ghetto kadashians.

      Guess what? You can actually applaud one woman’s efforts (or women) without denigrating those of others. It’s possible, Trust me.

      Nne, not to argue with you oh but sex appeal doesn’t reduce your intelligence or power in anyway.
      Dressing to let your femininity shine through isn’t a bad thing and doesn’t make you dumb and can we stop yabbing Kim? I like being that woman that excites a man’s senses and also help him career wise. These things are not mutually exclusive abeg.

      PS: you can have sex appeal without indecent exposure.

    @mz daniels nne not to disagree with you but one mans sex appeal could be anothers sex repulse. I feel we need to teach our girls to dress to suit the occasion because as im sure you are aware presentation matters. Also dressing to let your ferminity shine does not necessarily equate to dressing to excite/ tantalise/ tease the senses of the random opposite sex. But mz daniels we are all entitled to our opinions. This world is big enough for all kinds of dress senses and purposes.

    Classy is when a woman has everything to flaunt but chooses not to give it all up. These ladies are sassy I’ll let them into the club. Ladies dress how you mean to be addressed.
