The African continent is vast, and around half of African nations have significant English-speaking populations. Out of the 54 different nations that constitute Africa, 24 of them have large English-speaking communities.
An African narrator can help your project reach these English-speaking communities, from the estimated 87,000 people in Seychelles to the 182 million that inhabit Nigeria.
When you work with Voquent, we will help you find an African narrator voice that will suit your project. Whether your project is to target Ethiopia or South Africa, we have a voice for you.
Did you know that the African continent has over 663 million people who speak English in its various nations upon the last accurate estimate?
English has often been seen as a language that can bridge gaps in communication between the different African nations. So the language has often been seen as the continent’s go-to for inter-national communication within the continent.
Because of this, a variety of different African accents for English have developed, such as a Nigerian accent or a South African accent. With so many nations speaking English, the native languages of these nations will inevitably affect how English is spoken.
A prime example could be Nigerian Pidgin English with unique words or phrases, such as ‘how you dey?’ meaning ‘How are you?’ or ‘I wan Chop’ meaning ‘I want to eat.
Fun Fact: The 2021 film ‘Space Sweepers’ includes a character played by Nas Brown that speaks in Nigerian Pidgin.
An African accent can help you connect with African audiences, giving you project the personality it will need to stand out in the African market.
At Voquent, the narration specialists, we have made sure to source native African narrator voices to lend a flare of authenticity to your project. Every voice we work with has been vetted and approved for professional work.
We also offer translation services, should your project require it, using native speakers of African languages like Afrikaans.
