"Baby backing is way more comfortable. That wearing baby in the front no follow. Very inconvenient something. The only good thing about it is that you and the baby are looking at each other."

"Some stopped me in the mall once and asked me to teach them. We bought fabrics and I taught them."
A white man trying to speak Yoruba

In a clip shared by Nigerian Actress Bukky Wright, a Nigerian man stood behind a white man as he reeled out Yoruba expressions.
The white man repeated every phrase the Nigerian man said. Hard as he tried, his pronunciation still came out funnily.
