The World news agency BBC has a new division in West Africa with a special target for young people in Nigeria, Ghana and other countries in the area called BBC Pidgin. As earlier articles in the Journal has reported, the WOK Founder Erik Bolinder was interviewed while he held the WOK Conference in Lagos. Now BBC has completed the report in a 2-minute spot.
In the spot, the WikiMaster Content Contest winner Ms. Olawatoyin Ombebe and the Founder of Wikipedia User Group Mr. Shola Olaniyan summarize the great benefit of WikiMaster for the Nigerian students.
If you have heard and spoken Queens English before, the time has come to listen to the West African version :-)
