The National President of the CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OF Nigeria(CAN) Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor will present a PIDGIN english audio version of the New testament tomorrow.
The Nigerian pidgin english Bible promoting committee has Rev. Solo Adams as Chairman and Dr. Mark Erumi as translation consultant
Of course this is courtesy our WARRI people.:)
I have tried to picture what it will sound like:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life(NIV)
Translation: Baba GOD like us well well he come give us him only pikin, say anybody wey dey follow am go tey for this life.
Translation: Na Him Jesus start to dey cry
Please write some verses and suggest how you think they will be translated(in the comment box)
Pidgin English Bible. I honestly can’t wait.
I’ll personally buy one, even if I have to save for it!
At the same time I have thought just as our ENGLISH bibles have different versions, NIV, KJV,….will this Pidgin bible also have versions and what will they possibly be?
Do you have any suggestions for the possible version, please drop them(in the comment Box)
