Famous tongues;King suny Ade Omotola jalade ekehinde,
Dignified, with just a hint of willful naiveté, the deep, rich “oh’s” and “eh’s” of Naija bend the English language without breaking it, arousing tremors in places other languages can’t reach. Kinda makes the occasional phone scam worth the swindle.
Sounds like: The THX intro with teeth

grin i feel so sexy at moment, tempted to touch my self grin

On the other hand, I think Ghanians have the worst accent, followed by South Africans. That's not even mentioning phonetics; weck , feck.

Cant afford to lose my nigerian accent not because of any sexiness but because i cant be conversing with my mum and with nigerians at home, like a foreigner.

I had a relative who forgot his dialect after a long sojourn away from home and it was taken very negatively. People thought he was being snobbish.

Not a good situation at all and in such instances, you might as well stay away completely.

Will this encourage Nigerians that travel to the UK or USA even for one week and speak with fake accents to stop the fakeness?
Re: Nigerian Accent Ranked Fifth Sexiest In The World By CNN by MissyB3(f): 4:21pm On Aug 18, 2011
I'd say :
1) Italian
2) Spanish
3) French

anyway, @ topic

it has to be, actually, going by level of attractiveness to non-nigerians.
Re: Nigerian Accent Ranked Fifth Sexiest In The World By CNN by Nobody: 5:34pm On Aug 18, 2011
What is Nigerian accent? Dont they mean Yoruba accent?

King sUNNY ade and Omotola are both Yorubas. There is no such thing as a Nigerian accent.

Atleast it shows that despite the nature of our accent, it is still being appreciated worldwide.
Re: Nigerian Accent Ranked Fifth Sexiest In The World By CNN by BABE3: 6:05pm On Aug 18, 2011
Nigerian accent? Sexy? That gives a new meaning to the word "Sexy".

Saying "Oyel" instead of "Oil" is sexy? (Igbo-kwenu)  grin

Saying "Dévélop" instead of "Develop" is sexy?

Saying "Was Strong wit you?" instead of "What's wrong with you?" is sexy?

Plus what exactly do they mean by "Nigerian accent" sef? There are diff. sorts of 9JA-accents: the Igbotic ones, The Yoruba ones, the Hausa ones, the non-ethinic ones, E.T.C. They need to specify.
