I have regrets not becoming a US Citizen – Chimamanda Adichie

World famous writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has bared her mind on her frustrations in being in Nigeria and expressed her regrets in not taking up American citizenship when the opportunity presented itself.

She revealed this in an interview with the host of the Big Brother Nigeria show and popular media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Bounce radio.

She opined that Nigeria frustrated her a lot and that she had stopped attending the Catholic Church in Nigeria as it was all about money, fund raising and thanksgiving.

She was quoted to have said:

“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.”
