Talented Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has reacted after herself, Tina Brown, Jonathan Lethem, and Darren Walker were honored as Library Lions at the New York Public Library’s annual gala.
This year’s annual Library Lions Gala which brought together the literary world, was held on November 8, 2021, at the New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who was honored alongside Tina Brown, Jonathan Lethem, and Darren Walker, took to Instagram to share photos and speak about the event.
The Nigerian author whose works include novels, short stories and nonfiction, reacted by saying that to be honored as a Library Lion is “utterly spirit-lifting.”
In recent news Nigerian media personality, Toke Makinwa pours out her heart to a lady who suggested that she does not fit the role of a host on the Gulder Ultimate Search show.
According to a viewer of the 2021 GUS, the show lacks the thrill expected of it as a result of Toke’s role as the host which she considered ‘weird.’
“The truth is viewers lost interest in guider ultimate search the moment they announced toke makinwa as the host. This isn’t about h’ting or anything, i just believe every TV host and OAP have their own area of specialisation, toke makinwa hosting GUS is as weird as asking someone like Frank edoho to come and host a beauty pageant show, wetin consine agbero and final year exam?
If at all there will be a new season, then the organisers needs to do better if they really want viewers and ratings on their show, they should learn to appoint people on merit and credibility,” the viewer wrote.
In a now-deleted engagement, Toke Makinwa reacted to the viewer’s claim by standing her ground on working hard to get to that milestone in her career
