Chimamanda Adichie Features In Meghan Markel’s Forces of Change List

Popular Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie, has been featured in Meghan Markle’s Forces of Change list for British Vogue cover.

The Independent reported that the Duchess of Sussex, Markle, picked 15 women she considered strong ambassador for change for the upcoming September edition of the magazine which she co-edited. It was gathered that the Duchess spent seven months working with British Vogue editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, on the issue.

She said in a statement that she had sought to steer the focus of the September issue, usually the year’s most read, to “the values, causes and people making impact in the world today.”

“Through this lens I hope you’ll feel the strength of the collective in the diverse selection of women chosen for the cover as well as the team of support I called upon within the issue to help bring this to light. “I hope readers feel as inspired as I do, by the ‘Forces for Change’ they’ll find within these pages,” Markle said.

 Alongside Adichie, the list also features teenage climate change campaigner, Greta Thunberg, New Zealand prime minister, Jacinda Arden, boxer Ramla Ali and actress and women’s rights advocate Salma Hayek Pinault.

It is worthy to note that Adichie has many books under her belt, some of which are “We Should All Be Feminists”, “Americanah”, “Half of a Yellow Sun”, and “The Thing Around Your Neck”, which have also been translated into more than 30 languages.

She was also named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2015 and one of Fortune Magazine’s World’s 50 Greatest Leaders in 2017.

Adichie is truly a legend and from all of us here at Naijazzy, we say a big congratulations to her.
