My Husband was watching a video of a guy speaking pidgin on YouTube, so I went over to check out what he was watching and.. it was a white dude speaking pidgin, I ...paused, lol. I was like...wth!! Lol.
I looked online and saw more videos of this dude. He speaks very fluent Hausa and pidgin, I just bow give the guy, lol.
His name is Mohammed Jammal and looks more like he's from the middle East, so he's not white as in Caucasian, but he's not black either, lol. He was born in Nigeria, has a Nigerian passport and lived in Nigeria until he got into High school. He then moved to London but returned after a while.
He's a comedian and a singer. He has a song in Hausa and Pidgin that doesn't sound bad at all.
Anyways, I was impressed by his proficiency in Hausa and Pidgin and thought I should share this video with y'all.
According to Ladybrille:
White Nigerian aka Mr. Jammal is a graduate with both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Global Management. He joined the entertainment industry in 2010 after he was discovered on YouTube.
His first performance was in the presence of over 5,000 people at AY Live in London’s 02indigo.
Since then White Nigerian has performed in different shows including AY Live (London, Abuja, Lagos), Lord of the Ribs with Basket Mouth in Abuja, Nigeria @ 50 in Trafalgar Square, London, P-Square’s Album Launch in Lagos and many more. While many think of White Nigerian as a comedian, he is much more.
He recently collaborated with JJC and released “one of Nigeria’s best” club songs of 2011 rapping in both Hausa and Pidgin English.
