The UK Premiere of ‘Half Of A Yellow Sun‘ took place in London at Odeon Streatham on Tuesday, April 8, 2014. The event was attended by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the Nigerian writer that wrote the book for the movie.
Dressed in a red long lacy gown with neatly packed braided hair and a red lipstick to go with it, Chimamanda was looking every bit ready to steal the red carpet.
Apart from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, members of the movie cast were also present at the event. The likes of Chiwetel Ejiofor from ‘12 Years a Slave‘ and his model girlfriend Sari Mercer. In ‘Half of a Yellow Sun ‘, the British-Nigerian actor played the role of “Odenigbo”. He’s expected to be in Nigeria soon;
