- Top Nigerian author Chimamanda Adichie has dropped a bombshell in her latest interview
- The award-winning novelist said that US President, Donald Trump is very similar to an 'African big man' in many ways
- According to her, Trump is 'intentionally stubborn and very disrespectful'
Not a lot of Americans are fans of the current US President, Donald Trump, judging from social media. Joining that list is top Nigerian novelist, Chimamanda Adichie who recently revealed in an interview that Trump is similar to some African big men who are very insensitive.
Speaking on France 24, Adichie had shared her opinion on democracy which she termed 'very fragile'. When asked her opinion of the leader of the free nation, she described him as: "Intentionally stubborn, insensitive, ignorant, very disrespectful of everybody else," all attributes which she liked to the typical African big man.
"And even the idea that you have people who are your family members who are suddenly active in the goverment and nobody is quite sure why and what qualifications they have. That is very familiar to me as a Nigerian and I think the lesson there is that democracy is so fragile.” She added.
Chimamanda has always been one to air her views with regardless of what people have to say. The strong feminist once got Daddy Freeze rattled. In a recent social media dialogue, he bashed the author and tagged a derogatory term coined from her name.
Meanwhile, Adichie has made it known how proud of a Nigerian she is. She revealed that she wears mostly made in Nigeria outfits to support our own.
