Why I wear Nigerian designers – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie speaks
By Temitope Ojo
Nigerian novelist, writer and feminist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has been speaking on why she chose a writing career over despite studying Medicine and Pharmacy.
Speaking in an interview featured in I-D Magazine’s The Earthwise, the writer confirmed that fashion for her is a political statement.
According to her, writing gives meaning to her life. “It’s the thing that gives meaning to my life, really. I have the good fortune to be published widely, to be read, but if I didn’t have that good fortune, I would still be writing, because it matters so deeply”.
