Solomon Buchi

Nigerian activist Solomon Buchi recently shared his personal struggles and obstacles of being married to someone from a different tribe. He opened up about the challenges he faces, particularly when it comes to communicating publicly.

As a member of the Igbo tribe, Buchi expressed his regret at not being able to converse with his Yoruba wife, Arike, in their native Igbo language in public settings, often resorting to English instead.

In a lighthearted manner, Solomon Buchi expressed his longing for a situation where he could freely speak Igbo to his wife in a public setting and have her understand and respond in the same language.
