Nigeria, a country with over 521 languages has English language as her official language. Though united by a common official language, Nigerians have further devised more ways to communicate with the official language, from “Nigerian English” to Nigerian Pidgin English, these variations of the official language plays a major role in official and unofficial expressions and communications, keeping the people even more bonded.

New words and collocations have emerged from the Nigerian Pidgin English, which come from the need to express concepts specific and peculiar to the culture of the Nigerian People. The Nigerian English is like an inside joke, to those who understand it’s okay, to those who don’t, sorry.
