I Am The First to do This - Chimamanda Adichie Brags About Her New Feat
The popular and celebrated Nigerian has bragged about her new feat of becoming the first female chief in her hometown in Abba, Anambra state.
It is important to note that the writer was recently made a Chief in her hometown, Abba, Anambra State, and given the title of "Odeluwa" .
Making her gladness known to the world, the writer took to her Instagram page by sharing a video from her conferment ceremony.
"I am so grateful to my people of Abba in Anambra State for their warmth and love and enthusiastic support. And to Igwe L.N. Ezeh, who has always valued education, for giving me the title of “Odeluwa” — ‘the one who writes for the world.’ (My father received the title of “Odelora” — ‘the one who writes for the community” and the symbolism means very much to me.)
"I am the first woman in my hometown to be made a chief, and it makes me happy to know that more women will follow. Culture does not make people, people make culture. Cultures thrive when they best serve and reflect the people. Ours must become a culture that celebrates achievement, whether it comes from a man or a woman.
"It was a day filled with joyful moments but the highlight for me was the sight of many children on the dusty road, laughing and waving and shouting ‘Odeluwa!’ Amongst them, I hope, were little girls with their hearts full of dreams who feel encouraged to keep trying, to keep going."
