From what she said, if not for these writers, we wouldn’t be blessed with such interesting books as Half Of A Yellow Sun and Americana.

Speaking at the Face Of Okija beauty pageant, she said;

“Igboland produced great writers, if Chinua Achebe, Flora Nwapa and Chi Emecheta and Chukwuemeka Nkem had not written the books they did, when and how they did, I would not have had the emotional courage to write my own books and so today I honor them and I stand respectfully in their shadow.”
