In other news, Legit.ng earlier reported that Davido was spotted teaching US-based singer, Enisa, how to speak Pidgin English.
Pidgin is commonly spoken in Nigeria by all classes of people to communicate better especially if the speakers involved do not understand the same dialect.
Enisa who seemed to be enjoying her time with the Nigerian star was very keen on learning pidgin and proved to be a dutiful student.
In a video shared on her Instagram page, Davido was seen trying to get her to speak pidgin with the correct intonation. He taught her how to say ‘how you dey’ while explaining that it meant ‘how are you’.
