Ngee and Chigurl, you're both hilarious! This is my first episode. I loved it very much and I will start following the show for sure.

I was raised in Northern Nigeria and have a distinct Igbo accent which all my school mates in the North (even the Igbos) called me out on for most of my childhood. Now, as an adult, I've embraced my accent. I have a presentation voice to be sure (my work at the UN means presentations are the typical order of the day) BUT, I will beg to disagree on the tongue being 'set' at any age. Somehow, subconsciously, a bit of an accent creeps in if you spend enough time in a specific environment. I have found though that 'enough' time can vary. For children, it could be weeks. When we moved to Sierra Leone, my 3 year old started interpreting Krio for the rest of us almost instantly. At the age of 10, my eldest moved to Kenya to attend boarding school and after one term, his speech certainly had a distint East African inflection to it. The whole family moved to Kenya in 2011 and now, the Kenyan inflection is pervasive amongst all my children - and sometimes very annoying. Can you imagine my surprise when my husband points out that I too speak with a Kenyan accent? I get 'thrown overboard' with that because my Kenyan colleagues tease my 'Africa Magic' accent all the time! Either way, I hear nothing, just my real self trying to communicate.
