The foundation managing the works of literary icon, Chinua Achebe, have forced 50 Cent to drop the title of his soon-to-be-released multi-million dollar movie, Things Fall Apart.

The foundation threatened to go court over intellectual infringement, 50 Cent allegedly offered to pay $1million dollars to keep the name, the foundation refused and 50 Cent and his producers had no choice but to change the film’s title. It’s now – All Things Fall Apart.

Would you have accepted the money if you were in Chinua’s shoes as reported?

Achebe Foundation did an honorable thing by not selling out. I hope Manu Dibango of Makosa fame is listening.
