“Come…come closer, make we yarn”. That’s the business BBC News Pidgin is in – providing you with information, giving you a digital voice as well as connecting you to the global digital community.
A year ago we held a session about “Women in Digital Journalism” and talked about the imminent launch of BBC News Pidgin – the first fully digital service for Africa. We did launch on the 21 August 2017 and BBC News Pidgin is coming again to Social Media Week Lagos.

In this session, you can watch the BBC News Pidgin team producing the BBC Pidgin Minute – giving you the world in 60 seconds! This is a one-minute round up of events that matter to you across the region and the rest of the world from Social Media Week. The entire session will be live on our Facebook page, do join the conversation.

Come and meet the team behind BBC News Pidgin, and why not take part by trying out your Pidgin skills and recording your very own BBC Pidgin Minute with your friends?
