Remind me, do citizens of Nigeria and speakers of pidgin english in general pay the tax to fund the BBC?

Dey sent de write-write letta tel BBC bout de Prince of Nigeria he big big man he got lotta de money but he need de BBC to write a big big check so dey can get de money outta dat Nigeria.
Shit. I guess this has helped me realize my privilege even more. So that's some good come out of it.
I feel so sad for all the people who don't have a supportive environment even like SA.

You'd have to be a dumbass to be upset by this.

"Oh no the BBC is going to broadcast in a widely-used trade language to reach out to another audience!"

seriously if you care about this at all I suspect you are either wholly ignorant of linguistics or are a closet racist

It wouldn't be so ridiculous if the "market" they're trying to reach wasn't one that pays absolutely no fee's to the BBC. A national broadcasting company, funded by the taxpayer and the voter, apparently has an obligation to provide news in the creole language that is used as a lingua franca in some of their former colonies.

What are the odds that the "people" targeted by a pidgin news service are avid news watchers anyway?
