The Online Encyclopedia, Wikipedia says our own Uzodinma Iweala, son of former Nigerian Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, hails from Washington,DC and Nigeria. Bah, this author of Beast of No Nation is a FULL BLOODED NIGERIAN o. Make una no claim the guy.

Born in November 1982, and studied at Harvard. His debut novel is a formation of his thesis work at Harvard.

we stumbled into him on Funmi Iyanda's New Dawn and he says he's going back to school to read MEDICINE.Ol' boy take it easy. Lest, i forget, UNILAG is the place to study Medicine. It's my school. He can come. No, wait, i'm being frank. No jokes.
