Chimamanda Adichie, a Nigerian writer who has won numerous awards, has expressed regret for not being an American citizen when the chance arose.
Being a Nigerian, according to the author, is too exhausting for her, and she now regrets not being a US citizen.
Adichie made the revelation during a Bounce Radio interview with media personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.
“She’s Nigerian but Nigeria deeply frustrates her. She came to the immediate realization that she doesn’t have to be a dutiful daughter or citizen despite wanting to share in the average experience of an average Nigerian. She made the choice of not being a US citizen which she deeply regrets.”
In addition, the author discussed why she no longer attends the Catholic Church in Nigeria.
The 43-year-old author revealed that the Church’s activities had become “way too much” about money, fundraising, and giving thanks.
Adichie went on to say that, although she is still a Catholic, she considers it agnostic and doubtful.
