On her Bride Price, Chimamanda said:

When I got married, I felt very conflicted about the payment of bride price. And my father, a very lovely man said he didn’t want any money because we were not selling anybody. Instead he asked for something symbolic.
And so he asked for 1 Kobo because of it’s symbolism. I think bride price should be scrapped from our culture.

”I don’t know. I don’t know where Kainene is.’
