I was looking at the message boards at www.naijapals.com a website for Nigerians and they were discussing a recent episode of Oprah. The poster claims Oprah said “all Nigerians – regardless of their level of education – are corrupt.” As you can imagine they are all up in roar about this but I find it hard to believe she would say such a thing on her show. Did anyone happen to see or hear about this?

This seems to be the source, though they don't site an exact reference. Sounds like a rumor or a misquote to me.

Oprah did a show back in 2007 and featured scammers.

Despite the fact that she took time at the end to point out very clearly that she wasn't trying to tar everyone with the same brush, evidently some folks took it that way anyways. Welcome to the same people who say that baiters are racists.

out of curiosity, how'd something 2 years old just happen to come up?

The show that the Nigerians are referring to was Oprah's "Cunning Cons" airing in April 2007.

Apparently she did not use those words but the Nigerian press got hold of the story, inflated it and made it look like she did.

The media are shitty liars the world over.

Just another instance of people going out of their way to be offended. Confused

Don't cough too loud, you might insult someone's country.

From one of the replies:
Quote:
Na the person wey dem catch 4 pepper tree still pepper.

Anyone care to suggest a translation? It might come in handy in one of my baits.

LOL I have no real clue -- I tried the lad to english translator and it came up with (found at http://translate.50webs.com/english/eng.html)

Quote:
The input text is primarily pidgin, and translates approximately as:
And/in/on/at/with the person which them catch 4 pepper tree still pepper.

I am under the impression that something about catching a pepper tree being still pepper might be a local saying...maybe something like it doesn't matter how many worthless' mugus you catch, they're still not desirable...

If you're an oga it might be good to throw in, even if it doesn't make sense to the lad, just confuse them more -- or they may understand it in that context...I just don't know
