Chimamanda, why shouldn't we be surprised....?
'Why Are We Surprised? Thoughts on Nigeria’s Past, Present and Future'
That's the title of the keynote address given by Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie, a Nigerian novelist, who has quite an intimating cache of prizes for her writing.
Just recently she gave this keynote speech at the Nordic Africa Institute, Uppsala, Sweden, on the celebration of its 50th Anniversary – 50 years with Africa in focus.
The celebrations in Uppsala took place on October 15th at the institute’s new premises in the Botanical Gardens.
