Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, critically acclaimed Nigerian novelist has been nominated for the 57th Grammy Award for her feminist-inspired collaboration with American entertainer Beyonce, on her 2013 track “Flawless.”
Following her TEDx talk on why “We Should All Be Feminists,” Beyonce incorporated the writer’s essay into her single, which further brought more life to her craft.
Adichie, the award-winning author of Americanah whose work has been translated into thirty languages, has also appeared in various publications, including The New Yorker, Granta, The O. Henry Prize Stories, the Financial Times, and Zoetrope.
Adichie has also received several awards and distinctions, including the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction in 2007 and a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 2008.
This nomination for “Album of the Year” with her fellow feminist is just yet another achievement for the writer.
