• In the News: Ubong Inyang on Igbo Radio

     


    Ubong Inyang Production has received another recognition from a Nigerian-based blog - Igbo Radio whose primary purpose is to bring to the limelight the Igbo culture.

    About Igbo Radio

    The Igbo Radio was founded in 2009 to be an online resource centre for text, audio, video, news, educational and cultural content in the Igbo language.


    Their Mission

    As the first of its kind, we want to remain a pacesetter in using modern technology to promote the Igbo language and culture.

    Motivation

    Igbo, a language of over thirty million native speakers living predominantly in South-Eastern Nigeria, and which, due to immigration, now has a significant native-speaker representation in North America, is categorized as an endangered language due to sociolinguistic factors resulting in decreasing native-speaker competence.

    In North America and everywhere else where Igbo is spoken, modern professional families often have neither time nor the knowledge of the oral traditions to transfer to their children. We are stepping in to provide an avenue for the Igbo family to learn the language, values, customs, ethics, etc., through media content.

    This collaborative project focuses on preserving the Igbo language, which, according to UNESCO and endangered language scholars, will be extinct in 50 years. This website is designed to be a Learning Management System and an online language centre where users from all parts of the world can find news, audio and video content for both entertainment and educational purposes.
