Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Peter Obi were filmed exchanging greetings in the traditional Igbo way.
Chimamanda, who was conferred with the title of Odeluwa Abba, used her chieftaincy hand fan, which had her title on it, to shake Peter Obi.
Also present at the ceremony was Anambra state governor, Charles Soludo.
He later took to Facebook to share a photo he took with Chimamanda while congratulating her on her conferment.
Dr Ivara Esege, Chimamanda’s husband, was also present at the ceremony.
