Mary Remmy Njoku, Nollywood actress, has questioned why Nigerians refer to those who speak with Nigerian accents a “local”.
The actress/producer said there are foreigners in Nigeria who speak English with an accent but they are not shamed for that, yet Nigerians shame themselves for speaking with an accent.
She encouraged Nigerians to embrace their accents and leave the foreign accents for when they travel abroad.

“A family friend cleared his plate after eating. And his wife was showering him with praises for helping HER. HIS own plate o😉!Na WE be the cause of OUR problems.”
