50 Cent was forced to change the movie title from Things Fall Apart” to “All Things Fall Apart” because it mirrors the name of Chinua Achebe’s classic novel published in June 1958.

INFRINGEMENT: Despite offering $1Million, 50 Cent's bid to use the name THINGS FALL APART for his latest movie was blocked by Chinua Achebe's legal counsel.


 A source said, Chinua Achebe was offered $1 million dollars by the producers of the movie but he declined and released a statement saying:

“The novel with the said title was first produced in 1958 (17 years before 50cent was born), listed as the most widely read book in modern African literature, and will not be sold for One Billion Dollars”

THAT CLASSIC NOVEL: Chinua Achebe released THINGS FALL APART in 1958, 17years before the birth of 50cent.

All Things Fall Apart was shot sometime last year, in the movie 50 Cent lost a considerable amount of weight in order to play a cancer victim.  

The movie is set to be hit the movie screens in the very near future.

  1. Pa Achebe, you truly deserve a Standing Ovation. You are a rare breed, especially in Nigeria of today. You refused to be bought with money; you refused to sell your integrity and your legacy.

    " The novel with the said title - ('Things Fall Apart') was first produced in 1958 (17 years before 50cent was born), listed as the most widely read book in modern African literature, and will not be sold for One Billion Dollars" --Chinua Achebe
