Why Genevieve Was Dropped From Chimamanda Adichie’s Half of A Yellow Sun


When the news first made the round that Genevieve Nnaji has been dropped from the shoot of the bestseller, not many believed it.

But in truth, Genny’s small part in the big screen adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s
novel “Half of a Yellow Sun” has been cut out from the
finished film. It wasn’t just Genevieve’s scenes that were cut from the
movie, a few other characters from the book didn’t appear in the movie.

Sources in the know say the producers may have cut Genevieve from the
movie because her character wasn’t important to the story and was
dragging the storyline unnecessarily. Other characters didn’t appear
because there was not much time to tell everyone’s story. Genny may
appear in a scene or two but it will be very insignificant. Genevieve
played the role of Ms Adebayo, a professor who develops a
flirtatious relationship with her colleague Mr Odenigbo, played by
Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Half of a Yellow Sun features Chiwetel Ejiofor,
Dominic Cooper, Anika Noni Rose and Thandie Newton. Produced by Andrea Calderwood and
directed by Biyi Bandele. The book centers on the Nigerian civil war and was published in 2006.
