Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Mother Is Reported Dead

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Mother Is Reported Dead…
“A friend sends me a line from a novel I wrote: “Grief was the celebration of love, those who could feel real grief were lucky to have loved.” How odd to find it so exquisitely painful to read my own words.
Grief is a cruel kind of education. You learn how ungentle mourning can be, how full of anger… You learn how much grief is about language, the failure of language, and the grasping for language.”

Ngozi Chimamanda Adichie
( Notes Of Grief – )



This explains the state of mind of world reknown Nigerian Novelist and writer Ngozi Chimamanda Adichie, at the moment as her mother Mrs Grace Ifeoma Adichie ( nee ) Odigwe has been reported dead. Sources say she died yesterday 1st of March 2021 at Akwa Anambra state.



Her death was confirmed by a family member who made it known that preparations are on the way for her burial arrangements which would be relayed to the public as soon as they are done with it.


She died at age 78. Until her death, she is known for being the the first female Registrar of the University of Nigeria Nsukka. The news of her death is a big blow to the Adichie’s as they were only 8 months pass the burial of her father professor James Nwoye Adichie.

Prof James Nwoye Adichie who died at age 88 is known for being Nigerias first Professor of Statistics. He was buried on June 10 2020.


In her Notes of Grief which she compiled after her dads burial and published on, she wrote the following about her dad:


“Why does the image of two red butterflies on a T-shirt make me cry? We don’t know how we will grieve until we grieve. I don’t particularly like T-shirts, but I spend hours on a customization Web site, designing T-shirts to memorialize my father, trying out fonts and colors and images. On some, I put his initials, J.N.A., and, on others, the Igbo words “omekannia” and “oyilinnia”—which are similar in meaning, both a version of “her father’s daughter” but more exultant, more pride-struck.”
