Nigerian Woman,Nndei Okorafor’s Novel to be Made into Series by HBO

A Nigerian novelist is following in the steps of Chidiamaka Adiche by taking her literary work to TV.

Nnedi Okorafor, has just sold the rights of her novel , ‘Who Fears Death’ to HBO. The network which is behind hit TV series, ‘Game of Thrones’’ will develop it into a TV series.

The 43 year old Nigerian born, American novelist holds a PhD in English from the University of Illinois, Chicago. She is also a past winner of Wole Soyinka’s Prize for Literature in Africa.

The series is going to be executive produced by George RR Martin. He is also the co-executive producer of ‘Game of Thrones’. Congrats to her.

I love it when Nigerians are doing amazing things.
