It Breaks My Heart to See People Not Embracing Their Local Dialect Says Actress Kiekie
Popular Nigerian media personality and actress, Bukunmi Adeaga-Ilori aka Kiekie, has addressed people who are ashamed to speak their local dialect.
Taking to social media, Kiekie penned down a lengthy note where she addressed people who do not speak their indigenous language for fear of being called razz.
She went ahead to speak on how she cannot fathom how some Nigerians came up with the definition of razz or local before advising people to be proud of where they came from.
Kiekie also called for an end to the stigmatisation while the outside world is learning our language and selling it back to us.
According to Kiekie, the English language is beautiful but our local language is even more beautiful. On a final note, she added that speaking one’s local language with their indigenous accent is actually a big flex.
