Popular TV host Ebuka Uchendu has revealed how he lost a presenter gig because he couldn’t give up his Nigerian accent.

The media industry in Nigeria these days is filled with people who speak American or British accent. Aspiring OAPs and TV presenters are often forced to adhere to the standard

According to Ebuka who hosts popular show Big Brother Naija, the job he lost didnt make him bow to the pressure to adhere to the standard which will see him speak like a non-nigerian.

 “I once lost a presenter gig because my accent is too Nigerian, but it never stopped me from being true to myself and fully embracing my individuality. Don’t ever feel pressure to conform, you can actually break the norm because truly all our dreams are valid “, Ebuka shared.

OAP Dotun has slammed critics of his accent especially the way he sounded during his interview with Ubi Franklin over an ongoing beef with singer Iyanya.

OAP Dotun who speaks with a very fluent American accent promised it wont change as he wonders why people get bothered by such.

”If you are still bothered about my accent, I am sorry, it won’t change. What you should change is why it bothers you and if it does then come and take this seat and do better. I challenge you. I need you to throw something new at me. This is getting stale”, he tweeted.

He went on to say:

“‘If I can do this for over 15 years and you are still there passing vile comments when you should be to working hard, putting in your best to knock me off and do better then it is a shame. Listen to understand”.
