    Egerton-Shyngle sounds desperately contrived! Drama needed to be set in Eko Atlantic? How insightful! Her enunciation had better match that tag. Can’t wait…

      Egerton-Shyngle is not a contrived. If you are a proper lagosian… You would know that surname and no this ain’t Dara.

      I’m not sure how to respond to this.
      Since you have typed and not spoken this comment out loud, one cannot be sure exactly how you meant it. Please permit me to err on the side of ignorance and attempt an education.

      The Trans-Atlantic slave trade spearheaded by the sugar loving and tobacco smoking British was responsible for the wholesale theft of millions of Africans from her western coast. Many of Yoruba descent were taken to a lifetime of toil on inhospitable plantations in the Americas. When sale trade was abolished a large number were returned back to Freetown in Liberia, and many made their way back to Nigeria their ancestral home.

      The Saro from the Northern American plantations returned to Abeokuta while the Aguda from the Southern American plantations returned to Lagos.

      Names like Macaulay, Pedro, Campos, Craig, Egerton-Shyngle and Wellington all have a common history in this way and bearers of these names are fiercely proud of the peril their ancestors had to brave and the oceans that they had to traverse and the battles they fought and won so that we could be alive today.

      Finally, English is a language and NOT a measure of intelligence. The remnants of the empire will have us believe that their language superior to all others, but it is not. In fact in terms of complexity, syntax and structure Igbo is far superior to English. Yes! Dara’s enunciation is world class, she is a graduate of the prestigious New York Film Academy afterall. But even if it wasn’t, how does that detract from what is a fantastic radio drama?
