UNIBEN student goes viral for speaking with British accent, says ‘I was born with it’ (Video)

A student of the University of Benin, Edo state has gone viral after he was captured on tape speaking English with a clean British accent.

The young man simply identified as Aaron claimed that he was born with it and his father who teaches spoken english had a huge influence on how he developed the foreign accent

A female course mate made it possible for him to go viral when she interviewed him to get his opinion about the girls in their department.

She did a follow up video and asked him how he was able to speak so fluent with a foreign accent.

He explained that he often watches BBC news and British shows which helps him to master using the UK accent even though he is in Nigeria.

Aaron said he is open to the probability of being a news reporter or journalist after graduation.

The UNIBEN student said he know how to speak Pidgin English but he chooses not to because it sounds weird with his British accent.

She, however asked that Aaron should engage her in a conversation using pidgin, to prove he can speak.
