Nigerian Accent

"Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces" Proverbs 13:20 (MSG) "Do not be deceived: Bad Company corrupts good morals. " 1 Corinthians 15:33 (AMP) italics and emphasis mine

Fifteen years abroad yet when I speak English I am told l have a distinct Tanzanian accent to my tone and pronunciations of certain words. We can tell some heavy accent like Nigerian, Irish, English, Scottish, South African. What fascinates me is that people with accent don't know it, they think others without it are the ones with accentJ!

We take up more than accent from the people we spend time with; we pick mannerism, attitude, certain tendencies and beliefs, paradigms (view of life). No wonder people from certain areas are prone to be good in business while in other areas are not. It takes conscious efforts to undress negative influence we have picked along the way.
