Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian writer whose works range from novels to short stories to nonfiction.
The writer who is currently 42 years has revealed that she once had a crush on Michael Essien. This revelation was actually made in the introduction she wrote for a book, “Africa The Future of Football” which is authored by photographer Stefansson.
Recalling how she fell for Michael Essien, she disclosed that Nigeria was absent at a football tournament but became Ghanaian after watching the black stars play and that alone caught her attention.
This is piece of what she had to say;
” A small consequence of that game was my developing mild crush on the Ghanaian player, Michael Essien, as much for his looks as for his dexterity”.
