Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie  got married way back in 2009 to  Ivara Esege and have been together since.
While many people know Chimamanda, not too many people know her husband who is largely a quiet and media-shy person.

Also, what many people may not readily know is that Ivara plays a role in sustaining the smile that readily graces Chimamanda Adichie’s face. It was reported that after the couple welcomed their daughter, it was Ivara’s responsibility to look after her in the first six months while Chimamanda continued with her activism and writing. This is something some men will rather die than do.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian writer whose works range from novels to short stories to nonfiction.
