A Nigerian-American authour Nnedi Okorafor has come under fire on Twitter after she replied Talk is Cheap to an upcoming author who had boasted that she will one day be one of the best writers to come out of Nigeria.
The young writer had taken to her Twitter page to write on her aspiration and how she will be revealed in the future as one of the best writers to have come out of the country.
She wrote:
I am going to be one of the best writers to come out of Nigeria.

Then in what sounds as  misinterpreted chastisement, Nnedi Okorafor had written:
Talk is Cheap
This surely didn’t go well with the young writer who believed the established author looked down on her and she responded in what can be considered as a clap back:
Lmao, this was so unnecessary and disappointing from you smh. I thought you were magic but this is such as basic reply. Also, have you heard of speaking something into existence?

The exchange between the duo actually generated a whole lot of reactions on Twitter with some people being on the young writer’s side with the explanation that Nnedi ought to have either corrected her in a well understandable manner.

And some even went further to chastise the young writer for not utilising to the opportunity she had to have gained the attention of the world-famous author.

But in her defence, Nnedi mentioned that was her usual mode of telling students to do more and not just say the words.
