  • Part # 14 The language of music
  • In Nigeria,  there are 250 languages.  there are an estimated 400-500 idiolects.  a Nigerian might drive 35-40 minutes and have trouble understanding a conversation. This patchwork of languages means that pan-African brands and advertising have to move beyond words to emotion, music, images, and other nonverbal messages. In meeting this challenge, remember that youth everywhere speak one tongue: the language of music. Mahajan, Vijay: Africa Rising, p. 131.
