Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie will be featured on Guardian UK’s webchat tomorrow, where she will respond to questions from fans all over the world.

People have started posting questions on various issues ranging from her thoughts on the Obama administration and drone attacks, to feminism, and if she would be writing a sequel to the epic novel, Half of a Yellow Sun.

There are also questions about her controversial character Ifemelu’s obsession with hair, and her opinion of African American culture, movements and socio-political challenges.

Do you think President Obama has been a force for good in the world, considering Drone strikes et al?” Asked one reader.

Another reader added, “If the book had come out a couple of years later, would Ifemelu’s blog tackle police brutality and the Black Lives matter movement?

Recently, Adichie wrote a short story whose central character was a fictional depiction of Melania Trump; the wife of US Presidential candidate, Donald Trump. That truly controversial piece was published days before Mrs Trump was busted for taking some lines off Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech.

In December, free copies of the Swedish print of her TEDxEuston speech We Should All Be Feminists, published by Albert Bonniers Förlag, was given to high school students in Sweden(approximately aged 16).

Now, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie will be responding to questions from fans all over the world. Don’t miss out, you can join the discussion by submitting your own questions here.
