President and Executive Producer of Naija Honours, Laface, has stated that the popularity of Pidgin English cuts across barriers of religion, age, sex, tribe and professions, as exemplified by its general acceptance and use in radio stations in Nigeria.

Naija Honours aims to further yield to the repeated calls for Nigerians to celebrate the beauty and uniqueness of Pidgin English as further emphasized by the overwhelming growth of the Nigerian entertainment industry.

Laface further stated that the time had come for Nigerians to be proud of the uniqueness and tourism value of Pidgin English and promote it globally. If the Jamaicans can globalise Patual, we can also propagate Pidgin English to the delight of the entire world.

Naija Honours aims to celebrate distinguished Nigerians from different works of life in a creative event modelled strictly on Pidgin English.
