Flawless two!
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, critically acclaimed Nigerian novelist and award-winning author of Americanah ​ has been nominated for a Grammy award for her feminist-inspired collaboration with American entertainer Beyoncé, on her 2013 track "Flawless."

Adichie​ has also received several awards and distinctions, including the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction in 2007 and a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 2008.
This nomination for “Album of the Year” with her fellow feminist is just yet another achievement for the writer.
A source also confirmed that Adichie will be heading to Dubai in or before March 2015.
