THE film adaptation of a novel by the Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, published in 2006 by Knopf/Anchor, will soon be premiered in Nigeria, Nigerian Tribune has gathered.
Sources reaching Nigerian Tribune revealed that the previously restricted ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ movie, which the Nigerian Censors Board stopped it’s Nigerian premiere months ago, has been released for cinema viewing.
The source who disclosed this to Nigerian Tribune said that “the movie would premiere in cinemas within weeks, also disclosed that certain parts of the movie may have been edited by the Censor’s Board, but a large part of the movie remains uncensored and should still appeal to the millions of Nigerians who have been anticipating the Chimamanda Adiche’s adaptation.”
The movie features Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Genevieve Nnaji, OC Ukejie, among others.
