Lupita Nyong’o is on fire!
And with the win of her Oscar – dare I say it – in high demand.
So much so that National Books Critics Circle prize winner and Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie made a coy comment during an interview alluding to Nyong’o's role in a screen version of Adichie’s “Americanah.”
“I’m going to do the mysterious thing and say that Lupita
might be making an announcement sometime soon – I don’t know. That
announcement might be about “Americanah” – I don’t know,” Adichie said.
Adichie also revealed that Nyong’o is an avid “Americanah” fan.
So is Nyong’o really gonna star in the movie? Or does Adichie just
hope so? Well, I hope so, but I guess all we can do now is wait.
