Reports have it that Nigerians street language ‘pidgin’ may now have a face at the International feature film category of the OSCARS

MoAbudu who recently got a major contract with Netflix helped Nollywood reach this masterstroke.

Kenneth Gyang shared the good news via his Twitter; “Pidgin English is now considered a foreign language at the Oscars!”, Gyang tweeted. “Ms. Mo Abudu has been in communication with the International Features section of the Academy about the possibility of entering our film (made in pidgin) through the Nigerian Oscar Committee”.
