Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has revealed that she was sexually assaulted at the age of 17 by a big man in the media in Lagos, Nigeria.
The writer made this revelation during an address at the just concluded Stockholm Forum for Gender Equality.

While delivering the closing keynote address, Chimamanda told of how she had taken a book of poems she wrote to a “big man in the media” so he could support her in making the book go public, instead, he sexually assaulted her.
She said he was friendly at first and impressed that someone her age had written a book. But the man soon came to her, slipped his hand under her shirt and bra, then squeezed her Bosom . She said she was so taken aback that she did nothing for seconds, then she pushed his hand away “gently”.
She said:
I was so taken aback that I did nothing for seconds. Then, I pushed his hand away, but gently, nicely, because I didn’t want to offend him.
Later that day, I broke into a rash on my chest, my neck, my face, as though my body were recoiling, as though my body were saying what my lips had not said.
I felt a deep loathing for that man and for what he did. I felt as if I didn’t matter, as if my body existed merely as a thing to be done with as he wanted. Yet, I told no one about it. And I kept talking to him, being polite, hoping he will help with my book.
Watch her make the revelation in the video below, starting from the 3:44:08 mark.

Without mincing words. This is an attempt to rob Peter to Pay Paul. This is like Kettle calling the Pot black. She must be stupid for coming on air to say this? what else was she expecting to get here in a country like Nigeria and why approached a Rich man in the first place? She must as well be a good thief to know a thief for keeping a eye on the pause string of he who pays the piper plays the tune. With all her international award and accolades, how well has she affected the life of Nigerians with her talent? She is just another greedy "jeun jeun" only looking for her greener pastures and daily bread and really don't care about touching any Nigerian life. Another thief begging for Novelty in the chronicles of time.

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DONT HAVE TIME FOR GISTMANIA AND OTHER RUBBISH YOU ENGAGE YOUR LUDICROUS SELF IN....,thats epic reading how you talk about yourself. I am on and off on this blog,but this month,I've got time for this,but here is about the only place you could be popular,because you spend basically all your life here. You dont know me and though you have tried so many times,basically begging me to show you my pictures,I wont,because if not for this online stuff,i cant be seen with your type,your class is low,believe me. In real life,you cant cross my path,you can only see me from a distance and you will put yourself down to your level.
