I HAVE A PRIVATE IGBO TEACHER, ONE YEAR FROM NOW I WILL BE MORE FLUENT – JIDENNA

Nigerian-American mudic star Jidenna Theodore Mobisson, who is currently in Nigeria for the Heineken Live your Music  event, has said one of his goals is to be fluent in Igbo.

Jidenna made this known on Wednesday while addressing journalists at the Heineken Live Your Music press briefing in Lagos.

“I speak Igbo a little but not the way I wish. I actually took a class when I was in the US to speak more fluently and Aunty Ifeoma, God bless her, was just excited that we were there and she went so slow that at the end of the semester, we didn’t get anywhere,” he said.

“One of my goals is to be fluent so I actually hired a teacher recently to Skype with me so I can learn on the road so hopefully one year from now, I’ll be much more fluent than I am now.”
