Oyogist.com has learnt that Actor and presidential aspirant, Yul Edochie condemns those criticising the accent of Igbo people when speaking the English language.
While referencing how the Chinese, Italian, and other foreigners freely speak the English language without being bashed for their non-fluency, Yul encourages that Igbo people should be given a break with the criticism.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote;
“The Chinese man speaks English with a Chinese accent.
Same with the Italian, etc.
But you’re cool with it cos they are white.
Then your Igbo brother will speak his English with Igbo accent.
And you laugh at him, ‘oh he’s too Igbotic’.
Is he supposed to be Portuguese?
Are you ok?”
