Despite the precarious state of Nigeria as at today, the world still can not disclaim the fact that we are living legends that will always have effect on the world.

The award was given by Rare Rising Stars. With this award, she is the first woman to top the list.

  1. Congrats to miss Chibundu Onuzo, however, this report has a derogatory undertone. Why would she be described as an ‘Ibo’ girl? The writer seems to be ethnic biased.

  2. Congrats Chibundu. Ibos are now conquering the UK. This is awesome when one remembers Uk’s atrocious actions against the Igbo in the late sixties. Thank you Chukwu Abiama.

  3. May G̶̲̥̅Ơ̴̴̴̴͡D̶̲̥̅ bless you for making us proud.we Α̲̅я̩̥̊ε̲̣̣̣̥ happy for you. Two days back it was ohabunwa dat was topping de headlines, today again it is you, miss onuzo. Thank you. May we all continue to excel in all we do. IGBO KWENU!!!

  4. Congrats Chibundu.

    Meanwhile the writer for whatever reason chose to tribalize the award and did it wrongly. There is nothing like “IBO”. If it is intended to refer to the core people of South East of Nigeria, then it should be “IGBO GIRL”

    God Bless Nigeria

  5. im very happy for her achievement and i think Nigeria in making impacts internationally. But the truth still remains that Nigeria dont value what they have!!! Maybe if she was in Nigeria schooling, she wouldnt have gotten this far. Most students here suffer frustration, lack learning facilities, strikes here and there, the list goes on. May God help us!!!
