White woman advises Nigerians in diaspora

While sharing the video, the proud mother identified as @nwanyiocha on TikTok advised Nigerians in diaspora to always bring their children home to learn their language.

She noted that because the children are born and raised abroad doesn’t automatically mean that they will not learn to speak Igbo.

“Chijioke speaking Igbo. We have said it before me and we will say it always: Bring your kids home!

“Just because your kids are born abroad does not automatically mean they will not learn Igbo. You just need to be intentional about it! See Chijioke chopping Igbo pass me ohh. I am so happy and so proud!”
