Meet The Pidgin Commentator Making #WorldCup 2018 Extra Fun For West Africans

Despite a disappointing turn of events for the five (5) African teams (Nigeria, Egypt, Senegal, Morocco and Tunisia) which represented the continent at the 2018 World Cup currently ongoing in Russia, many viewers across West Africa especially Nigeria and Ghana have had no cause to lose interest in the bi…event.

One of the many reasons apart from soccer lovers being affiliated to various teams, players and urging them on for greatness is the pidgin commentary run by various channels on Dstv.

Yes, Nigerians and Ghanaians seem to be having a time of their lives as they choose Pidgin commentary over the usual English commentary.

The novelty on a broad spectrum has won the hearts of many sports fans in both countries who have often shared their excitement choosing pidgin commentary over the regular English commentary on social media.

Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture & Urban Entertainment News – www.nydjlive.com decided to fish out the personality behind the voice that has whipped up such excitement among the World cup viewers on DStv and guess who he is, Benjamin Okenna.

Born Benjamin Okenna, Benjy is a Port Harcourt based radio sportscaster and Supersport Pidgin English football commentator.

Aside being accepted as a master of pidgin commentary, Benjy is also a contemporary Gospel musician who recently released a single God Never Fails. The single featured multiple award winning musician and blossom friend Preye Odede.

He released his debut single Chionyeobioma in 2015.
