Nigerian Singer, Brymo has a suggestion on what language should be Nigeria’s First language.
Brymo via his Twitter account said that Pidgin should be used as Nigerian’s first language.
Nigeria is a country with diverse languages from different Ethnic groups but its Official language is English. Pidgin is also used by Nigerian.
The “Rara Rira” singer is asking for Pidgin to be adopted as the official language because in a way it’s still English but has a bit of local lingua to it and is spoke in almost every state of the country.
Adding that seeing the president addressing the country in Pidgin would be interesting to watch.
Make pidgin Nigeria first language… it’s still English, only it has bits of local lingua- it is spoken in maybe every state in the country… e go mad when presido come tv greet say “una good afternoon my fellow country people”… shiiiiiit!!!!
