Nigeria is a diverse country filled with several tribal groups and indigenous languages and over the years, these languages manage to always travel outside the nation. The reason for this is not far fetched because trans-Atlantic slave trade, immigration, and cattle grazing have definitely played a part. Countries Nigerian Languages:
1. Togo, Benin Republic, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Gambia, North America, UK, Europe, the Caribbean Islands, and Brazil: These countries all have one thing in common, they speak the Yoruba language. Wikipedia says Yoruba is the most widely spoken language outside Nigeria and Africa and estimates have shown that more than forty million Yoruba primary and secondary language speakers all over the world. In Brazil, especially, reports have said Yoruba could be one of their official languages very soon.
2. Sudan, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Eritrea, Ghana, Niger, and Togo: Outside Nigeria, the SOAS University of London recently revealed that Hausa language can be heard among Muslim scholars, diaspora communities of traders and the Blue Nile Province of Sudan. About World Languages also said the language is spoken in Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Eritrea, Ghana, Niger, and Togo.
3. United States, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Belize, Barbados, Bahamas, and Equatorial Guinea: Reports say the Igbo language is spoken by over 40 million people in Nigeria.
