    I love how, whenever Chimamanda’s been celebrated for new feats out there in the world (and doing us proud), there’s hardly a peep from her own Naija brethren.

    …. but let her just ask Michelle now about being a wife and a mother… rampage. This entire comment section will overflow with the same people just watching and seething from the sidelines. Truly amuses me.

    And whether Nigerians choose to accept her fully liberated thoughts or not, she will keep rising. Nwanyi oma, i mere nke oma!
