I don't think so. I have seen contrary.

it's about integration and Change. chimamanda didn't see the need to.


by the way, didn't you say you can switch to an American accent. when did you go there and how many years were you there?

chimamanda went to the USA at 19, still has a Nigerian accent.

can u send me a video link to olajuwon speaking?
i still submit that if you are past 19 you cant genuinely acquire a foreign accent. its all about the larynx. when you speak it vibrates at a certain frequency and that frequency is what shapes the voice box. different languages have different frequency. now this larynx is formed and molded and shaped by your voice when you are born till like the age of 14-17. once you pass that age it is fully solidified and the accent that solidified it is the only accent you will be able to genuinely speak with. you can fake other accents but that original accent will always sneak out cuz your larynx is molded to the frequency of that accent you had in your formative years.

the topic was about comparison of lifestyles of Nigerians in peckham to that of ajegunle . the write up only exposes way of life of Nigerians in peckham not likening peckham to ajegunle on terms of infrastructure, social amenities, security or economic viability.

i will tell you a very peculiar case. i find very peculiar the case of hakeem olajuwon. this nigga has been in america for 40 years and his accent is thicker than a bus conductor in oshodi lmao. that nigga refuse to change. too black too strong grin grin

You exaggerate. His accent isn't as bad as a lot of people I know from the video link you sent.

PS- I am a big NBA fan and I took notice of your name when you once mentioned the 2000 SlamDunk contest. Allen Iverson was the best player I ever watched. Vince Carter was my favourite to watch and you probably know why.

On Olajuwon....well after 4 decades and interactions with whites, he should have been able to mimick foreign accents.

People around me mock how thick my accent is . I just can't fake it. It's far far worse than Hakeem's.

Iverson didn't have "TEAM" in his dictionary but pound-for-pound, inch-for- inch, hardly would you see a better all round player. I am an inch taller than he is, but I can't imagine facing 7footers the way he did ...fearlessly.

That was a golden age in basketball with the elite guards like Stockton,Payton & Kidd.

You sir are wise. Much respect.
claremont:




It's normal to imbibe the culture of the society you choose to live in, it's a sign of integration. I have seen quite a lot of Nigerians who came to the UK over 20 years ago, but cannot muster a decent sentence in proper English without interspersing it with pidgin and/or a Nigerian dialect. This clearly shows that these Nigerians have spent donkey years keeping to themselves in their little silos in a country that's not theirs, they haven't bothered to integrate. What I fail to understand is why immigrants fastidiously treasure their culture so much when they are outside their country, how has this so-called culture lead to anything positive in your home countries?! If you value your culture so much so that you choose not to integrate in a country you have migrated to, it's pointless leaving your home countries in the first place.

My point IS - the first responsibility of any immigrant is to integrate in the country you choose to call home. Integration might mean imbibing the accent, the food e.t.c of the country that has given you the opportunity to have a good life away from your home country. It's not a sign of inferiority complex to imbibe the language and other aspects of the culture of a 'foreign land' that has given the immigrant an opportunity to achieve his/her life goals, the people who should feel inferior are those who refuse to integrate overseas because they feel that their African culture is superior to others.

The comment the article made ''If a language dies, so does the human spirit. A people without a culture will lose their self respect'' is bullshit to be honest, it's the opinion of the writer. People who migrate to a different country are not doing it in search of self-respect, they are doing it in search of a better life. If they wanted self-respect, they could have remained in their home countries where, apparently, self-respect is a currency that pays the bills.
