Chimamanda Makes Marie Claire Brazil Magazine Cover

Renowned Nigerian Novelist, Chimamanda Adichie made the cover star of the recent Marie Claire Brazil, an international magazine in Brazil.

The 41 year-old Enugu-born short story and nonfiction writer with 367,000 followers on Instgram and 241 posts took to her page @chimamanda_adichie on Saturday to share the cover and express her feelings.

“Delighted to be on the cover of Marie Claire Brazil. And to highlight the work of talented designers: Brazilian @renatabuzzo.veglab and Nigerians @kikikamanu and @the_ladymaker

“Thanks you @lauraancona @driferreira @Kakakaren_ka @ruafilmes.

“And everyone at the Marie Claire Brazil team for taking a stand for feminism,’’ she wrote.

The award winning writer’s works include, Americanah (2013), `Half of a Yellow Sun’ (2006), `We Should All Be Feminists’ (2014) and `The Thing Around Your Neck’ (2009).

Gracing the cover of the magazine is a great achievement for the fifth child in the family of six children.

However, since its launch in 1991, Marie Claire Brazil has become the biggest fashion-oriented female magazine and the most read women’s magazine in the country.

Also, it is the essential brand to reach independent and intelligent women with taste for fashion.

The magazine was first published in France in 1937, followed by the UK in 1941.

Since then, various editions were published in many countries and languages like in the USA, Australia, Indonesia, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Argentina and many others.



  1. Does anyone at Next Edition ever do any editing? Chimamanda Adichie is NOT a writer of “nonfiction”. In fact, her fame is due (justly so) to her FICTION. The Purple Hisbiscus, Half of a Yellow Sun and Americanah are all works of fiction…as is her collection of short stories, The Thing Around Your Neck. Why do you insist on embarrassing yourself by publishing stuff that’s clearly not been edited properly?
