His tweet reads, “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?” he added.
This is coming after Nigerians have dragged Big Brother Naija season 4 winner, Mercy Eke, for speaking English with Igbo accent.
