Imagine that. Our very own accent is ranked by CNNgo as the 5th sexiest in the world. In their words, “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.
We were ranked 5th right behind, Czech Republic, Spanish, French and Italian.
So this should be a wake-up call that our accent is actually sexy and the fake fone` peeps can take a chill pill. America is not even on the list, unless of course you count the southern accent ranked 8.
Makes one wonder though, what is the sexiest accent in Nigeria.
