Chimamanda is not into business else, They woulda looked for ways to run her down while the likes of Tinubu still walking a free man despite been convicted in united states over Nacotics dealings and 3 bullion vans that drove into his compound on the eve to election.

Keep soaring high and higher Chimamanda, Ndigbo are proud of you.

This is someone I respect so much, she is a proud Nigerian ambassador. In all of this, she has stayed true to her African roots; not trying to speak with an American accent.

To top it all, she has been able to keep her marriage and family together. Very proud of you!

Every potential Igbo business men should know that your business will face persecution as along as it is still on Nigeria soil. The more Reason while they must rally round Nnamdi Kanu to push for referendum. Look at Innoson, Look at Ibeto now look at Allen Onyema.


Meanwhile Congrats to my Sister Chimamanda

Great Woman!
An embodiment of virtues, intelligence, independence, beauty, strength and enviable character.
One of the few Nigerian women who cast positive light on the word feminist.

While most fake feminists hide under that word to slut around and suck different sizes of deeks, promiscuous single mothers, but Chimamanda remains a virtuous woman worthy of emulations.
