We’re sure the BNers who won the ticket to the exclusive interactive session with author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie had a great time because we did.
Tagged “An Evening of Conversations,” the discussions bordered on feminism, tips for writing, dealing with backlash, bride price, toxic masculinity, her next novel, her love for Nigerian fashion brands
and online shopping, raising a male child, and so on.
Chimamanda also got an amazing gift from this young man who travelled from Lokoja, Kogi state to Lagos for this event.
