The Nigerian pidgin English is a creole-like language that eases communication among people of different ethnic backgrounds in Nigeria. It is a mixture of English, Nigerian languages, and other foreign languages such as Portuguese and French. Pidgin English has its own unique vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation that set it apart from standard English. This language has become widely spoken and is used in various aspects of daily life, including music, movies, and informal conversations. 

The All Stars, as expected, are quite conversant with pidgin and use it often when having conversations with each other. From hilarious banter to heartfelt expressions, their command of the language added an extra layer of authenticity to their interactions. Let's take a look at which of the Top 6 is best at dropping amazing gems in pidgin English.
