Nigerian born American singer, Jidenna Theodore Mobisson, simply known as Jidenna by many has revealed that, as one of his main goals, he intends to become fluent in Igbo
According to Jidenna, he once took an Igbo class in the US just so he could get a handle of the language.
The classic man as he is fondly called, made the revelation on Wednesday while fielding questions from newsmen during a press briefing at the Heineken Live Your Music in Lagos.
He said; “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.”
