Pidgin is too dope
Some people think speaking pidgin English is local, but if you’ve ever heard a Warri man speak pidgin you’ll think twice. Why do you think they say ‘Warri no dey carry last?’
Dr Joe Abah asked Nigerians to translate ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ into Pidgin and stand the chance of winning a prize
Can you say “The Lord’s Prayer” fully in pidgin English? You stand the chance to win this book.
Now for those who don’t know The Lord’s Prayer, or have forgotten it, here it is:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Nigerians came through with the translations!
