Nigerian Players Always Speak Pidgin English & I Want To Learn - England Striker, Jamie Vardy Says

England and Leicester City striker, Jamie Vardy, has spoken about his admiration for 'Pidgin English' and wants to learn how to speak as fluently as the Nigerian players in his team.

Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Ahmed Musa are all Nigerians who play with Vardy at the English club.

In a chat with TheCable NG, the football star said his only setback is that he finds it hard to understand when the Nigerians players are communicating in Pidgin English.

'The Nigerian players keep talking- Pidgin English you call it, right? It’s hard to understand. But I am trying to learn it and speak it like they do.'

The striker described his Nigerian teammates as 'great players.'

'They are great players. And as the team is trying to improve, that is why they are brought to the club to help us improve. So, it is left to them to work hard and get on the playing field.'

James Vardy who helped Leicester City to secure the Premier League trophy in 2016, scored 24 league goals, to earn him the second highest scorer in the Premier League for the 2015–16 season, behind Golden Boot winner Harry Kane.

Barack Obama & Michelle Help Their Daughter Malia Check Into Harvard University Dorm (Photos)

Malia Obama is officially a college student. The oldest daughter of Barack and Michelle Obama moved into her Harvard University dormitory on Monday afternoon, one day before her fellow students began arriving with their parents.

The family was joined by members of the Secret Service as they pulled up to Malia’s new residence in a two-SUV envoy, managing to avoid detection despite the thousands of people around the campus and in Cambridge.

That was due in large part to their timing, with the Obamas electing to get everything moved and Malia settled into her new digs during the solar eclipse.

Then it was time to say goodbye, which did not look easy for the parents of the 19-year-old freshman.

Barack and Michelle had their sunglasses on long before they exited Malia’s dorm and kept their faces looking down as they rushed into their SUV, leaving their daughter behind to start her new life at dad’s alma mater.

NBC Denies Banning Davido, 9ice & Olamide’s Songs, Says It’s Not Their Job

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has said it did not issue a statement banning the songs of Olamide, Davido and 9ice from being broadcast.

The NBC said it is not in the business of banning songs, saying by virtue of the broadcasting law, radio and television stations are to ensure that songs containing vulgar or suggestive lyrics and visuals are not aired.

Idachaba Armstrong, director of broadcast monitoring, said that a ban notice of ‘Wo’ and ‘Wavy Level’ by Olamide, ‘Fall’ by Davido and ‘Living Things’ by 9ice did not emanate from the NBC.

The ban notice, which was issued by the National Broadcasting Corporation, had been circulating on social media for the past couple of days.

Reacting, Armstrong said:

“First of all, NBC is a commission, not a corporation.
“Nobody at NBC issued a statement to the effect. We can’t be issuing a statement on every album released in his country. The broadcaster has the responsibility to do the needful.
“NBC does not ban songs, we don’t have any business with the artistes. It is left for NBC to tell stations to ensure the songs and videos are fit for broadcast before putting them on air.”
Armstrong emphasised the need for broadcast stations to do “gate-keeping” so as to determine the songs that are unsuitable for broadcast.
“The whole idea of offensive vulgar lyrics. It is the responsibility of broadcasters to ensure they don’t come on air,” he said.
“They are supposed to do what is called gate-keeping and they should have editorial control over their content but broadcasters now carelessly air songs without exercising that editorial discretion.
“They abdicate that responsibility and then expect us to start chasing them.”
The director of broadcast monitoring, however, said he has ascertained that the songs in question are “actually offensive”.
He said:
“I have reliably gathered that some of those songs are actually offensive, regarding the lyrics. Some of these songs are for clubs.
“These stations that should practice self-regulation are lazy and unprofessional in their conduct.”
Armstrong said broadcast stations are aware that any lyrics or song containing offensive content cannot be put on the air, adding that any station found wanting will be sanctioned.
“We will impose the necessary sanctions on the stations. If the stations contravene any of the broadcast code, they will be fined,” he said.
Explaining how the process of sanctioning a broadcast station works, he said:
“Once NBC picks it up, we call the stations to order and impose the necessary fine. First, we caution you, then impose a fine afterward, which can be between N50-N100k. But if they are recalcitrant, it can rise to N500k.”
Since the news of the purported ban hit the internet, fans and several entertainers have heavily criticised the commission.

IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu Reveals Why He Set-Up Biafra Secret Service

The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said that he set up the Biafra Secret Service so as to provide security for Igbo people.

Kanu, who spoke yesterday shortly after his visit to Senator Enyinna Abaribe, claimed the federal government had failed to protect the people.

He said Fulani herdsmen were killing Igbo people while the police failed to address the issue.

He said:
“I will not do anything that will bring dishonour to my people. There is no reason for people to be afraid of the internal operation of IPOB.
“We want to stop the menace of Fulani herdsmen in our land. In the north, they have the Hisbah police, they have the Sharia police. They even have the Janjaweed police. Here, we have nothing.
“We need to protect this very land. We want to protect the Fulani men from rustling.
“The police have done nothing. Fulani herdsmen are operating everywhere.
“President Buhari spoke; he never mentioned the menace of Fulani herdsmen. His interest was Biafra agitation. It doesn’t work for me. I am a Biafran.”

“Aunty Kemi, I am happy we can put this matter to rest and I must sincerely say, I have no personal issue with you except for Tiwaloluwa. When you release your first post, I liked it until the blogs blew it out. I never for once mentioned your children in any of my post and your PH issue, I said I was happy at first, but realised we all make mistakes and deserve forgiveness. The same blog made it look like I was mocking you and then you know what happened from there. I am sorry I said too many things and do hope you forgive.
If you ever heard anything after this, trust me they were interviews I granted before this month. I am glad we can lay this to rest. I wish you well in your Gubernatorial quest and hope we can always be happy for each other. Thanks for your concerns. God bless you. ‘SEYILAW.”
