Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie could be earning herself an unexpected accolade this weekend at The Grammys, where she’s nominated for ‘Album of The Year’ as part of Beyoncé’s self-titled LP. The credit, of course, comes from “Flawless,” the Beyoncé single which uses a lengthy sample of Adichie’s ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ TEDxEuston speech, in which the writer urges audiences to dismiss the notion of feminism being inherently “un-African.”
