Nigerian musician and songwriter Ọlawale Ọlọfọrọ Ashimi, popularly known as Brymo, has called the attention of the federal government to pidgin language.
The Lagos-born artiste took to his Twitter page to suggest that the federal government of Nigeria should make pidgin the country’s first language as it is spoken in almost all states, Daily Times gathered.
Brymo wrote, “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,” the singer wrote in a mixture of pidgin English.
“E go mad when presido come tv greet say ‘una good afternoon my fellow country people’ Sh**ttt!.”
