What Sound Sultan is doing to ensure his kids speak Yoruba
Singer Sound Sultan has expressed regret for sidelining Yoruba language and upholding English while raising his kids.
The singer revealed that his desire to ensure his kids speak good English was, however, to the detriment of their ability to speak Yoruba.
As a way of ensuring his kids speak Yoruba language as much as they speak English, the singer enforced Yoruba as the lingua franca in his home.
