Chimamanda Adichie Loses Mum Few Months After Demise Of Her Dad
Popular Nigerian Novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has lost her mother Grace Ifeoma Adichie. According to sources, the 78-year-old breathed her last on Monday 1st March in Awka, Anambra state.
The circumstances surrounding her death were however, not disclosed.
Ifeoma’s demise comes more than eight months after the author had lost James Adichie, her father, who died after a brief illness. The ace novelist had last year narrated how her father’s death left her unsettled.
“Because I loved my father so much, so fiercely, so tenderly, I always at the back of my mind feared this day. But he was in good health. I thought we had time.
Sleep is the only respite. On waking, the enormity, the finality, strikes. I will never see my father again. Never again. I crash and go under. The urge to run and run, to hide from this.
I am writing about my father in the past tense, and I cannot believe that I am writing about my father in the past tense. My heart is broken.”. She captioned her tribute on Instagram.
