    Default 50 Cent forced to rename movie by renowned writer Chinua Achebe

    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.
