It’s official. Smart people still matter in the celebrity world!!! With all the negative news circulating all over the world about Nigeria, I’m happy to see that one of our smartest men is still holding it down on the international stage, in a positive way.

The father of African literature authored the 1958 classic, Things Fall Apart which has been translated into over 50 languages and has sold over 10 million copies internationally. In September, Achebe made headlines when he turned down a $1million offer from American Hip-Hop act, Curtis Jackson (A.K.A 50 Cent) for permission to use the Things Fall Apart title for an upcoming movie.
