:lol: :lol: :lol: Chikizi-ezi. Very funny how the judges pronounce his name.

Reminds me of what happened to me today. Went on a course at work, and it happened that the register which had the list of attendees had Chizor, my English name, and then my surname.

The lady taking the course looked at the register and asked how i pronounce my name, and i helped her with it. She tried pronouncing it again a little later but found it difficult to pronounce. At that point ,she asked if she could "just" call me my english name and i said NO. (you must pronounce it. 8) 8) If its a name like Schwazneger, which is equally hard to pronounce, im sure she'll learn it!)

:lol: :lol:
your name has enough vowels in it for them to be able to pronounce it. For me they do very well with my names: weruche, uche. the only thing is the last syllable sounds like UCCI, WeruCCI...
...but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. ( Phil. 3: 13-14)

Good for "chikizi izi" trying my best to spell it out the way those AI judges pronounced it, he didnt even try to correct them at all; I don't blame him for that though, it wouldnt have been to his advantage if their focus was diverted to the correct pronounciation of his name

Chizor, its good that u were adamant about the lady pronouncing your igbo name right. As w'uche said, your own name is not hard to pronounce. However, I have told my american friends to call me "bonma" cos I know it'll take them forever to pronounce "ugbonma", even some nijaz cant pronounce my name correctly. If I had a simpler shorter igbo name, then i would ensure that they learned how to pronounce it

Reminds me of one chic in my church with the name Chinuruolum.

She makes sure people call her her full name. If you pronounce her name incorrectly, she'll call you aside and go Chi-nuru-o-lum. Lol!

very funny indeed!
But I'm happy for 'Chikizi' - it was really hilarious hearing Randy ronounce the name - Simon, who'd getting pple's names wrong all day didn't even try to pronounce it!

Chizor, I agree with you, it's easy to pronounce Schwazneger and Schazinger, but they find it difficult pronouncing ours - I think it's becos we let them get away with it. Stick to ur guns girl, and eventually they'll learn.

MY mom's name is Inegbagha, and surprise surprise - they pronounce it well!

@Trish - right on sister but may be more valid when we start calling you by your Ijaw name rather than this preety trishy thingy. So remind me, what is your ijaw name?

I hear his parents were mad when he wanted to take up singing, typical naija parents now they've opened eye, his momsie is now calling every naija friend in the US to vote for her son, she called my aunt who called me to vote early this week. How was his tuesday performance, i missed it.
Its annoying when u here them pronounce those Polish names that have every consonant in the alphabet! Sha when they want something from you, or you are their boss, they learn quick! :lol:

UjuN! I'd been too lazy to log in until I saw this post...you know the boy too eh? Wallahi you are the most connected person I know. Ever!!! :lol: :lol:

BTT
I've never really watched the boy though - as a matter of fact I haven't watched AI this season. Is he any good?
