Audio Readings for those with strong accents.


We've got a bunch of fine Nigerian poets joining recently, and thanks to Chris 'vandiemenspeak' Hall, now Director of Neopoet Audio, we will soon be posting some of their work.

Any volunteers to... um... ah.. how to put this... Nigerians often have such a strong accent it is difficult for Western English speakers to understand, so volunteers to do dual readings would be fucking amazing.
You don't have to travel there. They read theirs, others read the same in a different accent, post both together.
What do you think?

I think Nigerians have beautiful perfect accents. I doubt us Americans can speak Nigerian so eloquently.

and fact (without any bias, prejudice or judgement) often so strong that native English speakers can't understand it.
I was trying to help with this post, not alienate.
