Afrosoul, best and jazz singer, songwriter and performer, Ibrahim Olawale popular known by his stage name, Brymo has told the Federal Government to consider making “Pidgin English” the country’s official language.
According to him, “Pidgin English” is not necessarily different from the normal Nd and widely spoken English Language.
He also added that it is spoken in every part of the country and it will nice to hear the President address the citizens in “Pidgin English”
The “Yellow” crooner said this recently via his Twitter account.
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!!!!

Problem is.. There are many pidgin languages spoken in 9ja. Infact every state has its own slangs. 😂 Imagine a Warri president, how will my Northern, Middle belts and some southern states folks interpret. 🤣🤣🤣

Pidgin is any how you sabi communicate. As far the other understands it.
In that case, there is no correct or wrong pidgin

I totally agree to this. Homogeneous nations grow faster and this unity in language may go a long way, no matter how little.
