Cucumber is pronounced que-come-ber
Re: How Naija People Dey Pronounce These Words Abeg? by Mercychen(f): 10:18pm On Sep 17
Cucumber is pronounced. Kyu- kam- b ( sound the bee as in /b/)

Affidavit is pronounced -- Af - day- vit.
After the "f" the next sound is a silent vowel known as shuwa. Thats why I didn't put anything after the f because you can hardly hear the sound.

Camouflage is pronounced Kam - flashz. The "age" at the end sound like "sure" in pleasure, pressure.

Stipend is pronounced. Sty- pend. The sound of Sty where a pig lives.

Gigantic. Jai - gan- tik

Wednesday. Wens-day.

Watch full short video for correct pronunciation here
https://youtu.be/J-7ezjX9d60
it would have been better if you could post a voice note on this site or even the video,not a lot of people loves being redirected from the site to other sites but of course seun decided he doesn't want to upgrade the site
Same mentality nigerian leaders have levai g us in the stone age

I can confidently tell you that 90% of nigerians don't know about nairaland
7% of the 10 have heard of it but the site seems to complicated and not attractive to them
Only 3% likes the site,don't let that members count deceive you
Some even join to check it out it to abandon their account

Right now nairaland should have been the nber one nigeria social media site but of course instead of making it better he make it worse like nigerian leaders

Just like he removed polls,now we have to rely on likes on share as a sort of poll
