Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta and Edo speak Pidgin the most. The rest of Nigeria also speak Pidgin in different accents and intonations. My favorite is Akwaibom and Hausa.

It destroys your proficiency in English. Should be utilized while typing? ... pretty cool

Spoken? should not be used at all unless you've run out of options.
