'Speaking Igbo with accent'– Reactions as Maria chides her worker in local dialect

Maria Chike Maria Chike

Fans of Big Brother Naija star, Maria Chike, have reacted hilariously to a trending video of her speaking Igbo.

In the video, the reality TV star, who had just returned to Nigeria from a holiday overseas, is heard berating one of her workers for destroying her plants.

Maria, apparently dissatisfied with the state she met her plants, inquired of the worker whether he watered them while she was away.

While responding, the worker insisted that he watered the plants, which seemed to enrage Maria even more.

In the course of venting, Maria switched to Igbo to address the worker, and it elicited hilarious reactions online.

“You killed my plant. Ehn? What do you mean mbah (no)? You’ve killed it. Like you’ve literally just killed my plant, like. Were you not watering it?” Dude you killed my plant, even the colors….. like likeee. Chineke gbokwagi oku ebe ahu (May God burn you there)”. An enraged Maria said.

Reacting, an Instagram follower @en_eji wrote, “She can clearly speak Igbo, that’s why he was communicating with her in Igbo. The British ascent is for the cameras. Then her Nigerian ascent is her normal self.”

@giftadene_ wrote, “She speaks Igbo with same accent. Na ear dey pain you abi wetin?”
