‘Odeluwa’: I’m first woman to be made chief in my hometown – Popular novelist, Chimamanda Adichie reveals

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Popularly known Nigerian writer has disclosed that she is the first woman in her hometown, Abba, Anambra State, to be honoured with a chieftaincy title.

The Nigerian celebrated novelist said this via her Instagram handle on Wednesday as she shared video of the moment the Abba monarch, Igwe L.N. Ezeh, performed the necessary rites, making her a ‘titled’ woman in anambra state.

Adichie was honoured with the title of ‘Odeluwa’ which means (She Who Writes For The World) on Friday, last week.

Revealing this, She said, “I am so grateful to my people of Abba in Anambra State for their warmth and love, for their enthusiastic support. And to Igwe L.N. Ezeh, who has always valued education, for giving me the title of ‘Odeluwa’ — ‘the one who writes for the world.’ (My father received the title of ‘Odelora’ — ‘the one who writes for the community’ and the symbolism means very much to me.)

“I am the first woman in my hometown to be made a chief, and it makes me happy to know that more women will follow.”

The Popular novelist added, “Culture does not make people, people make culture. Cultures thrive when they best serve and reflect the people. Ours must become a culture that celebrates achievement, whether it comes from a man or a woman.”
