Remember Dora Akunyili’s daughter, Njideka, whose painting Bush Babies sold for over $3 million 2 years ago? She recently got a high profile visitor in her studio, former US First Lady, Michelle Obama
Recall that Njideka received $625000 from the MacArthur Foundation and was made a member of the foundation’s “Genius” Fellowship.
Look, our girls should see women like Ndidi Nwuneli, Njideka Akunyili and Chimamanda Adichie among others as role models.
Ndidi Nwuneli is recognised for her commitment to helping the less privileged, while Chimamanda Adichie and Njideka Akunyili are recognised for their artistic talents.
Njideka’s mum, Dora Akunyili was recognised for her fight against fake drugs and her impeccable integrity. Woman, you too can shine. Believe in yourself.
See photo from the Michelle Obama visit. Our ladies are surely doing very well. Umu nwoke, ngwa nu!
