I think i am still the biggest fan of Chimamanda Adiche and i think i have actually gone through all her videos on youtube except newly published and i think have gone through all her interview on BBC archive in mp3 and i always pause a moment when i see an article written by or about Chimamanda. I believe that place me on number one spot … LOL
Recently i came to consciousness, after reading her article on the Anti-Gay Law in Nigeria and also articles credited to one Ms. Funmi Iyanda and other celebrities that have spoken against the law including Prof. Wole Soyinka. I sincerely asked myself a question “If am in her shoe will i have supported the law”?
sincerely speaking i would also take her stand not because i know better or that my exposure grant me a broader view point and i don’t think is because of better understanding as a result of relationship with wider world but i strongly think is to Preserve their popularity, to create further corporation with their major sponsors which are motivators of the cause the US and UK. This our proud Nigerian’s i believe are first an ambassadors to the various organisations they represent.
After reading the account of prof. wole soyinka on the same issue actually i didn’t feel disappointed and wonder if Canada Government could cancel appointment of the President of Nigeria on the account of the anti-gay law what extent will they not go against the career of this Nigerians. I also imagine the US threatening withdrawal of Malaria Aid to Nigeria as a result of the law let alone individuals.
