Be it Yoruba 'H' factor, Hausa 'F' factor or Igbo 'R' factor, I don't have any problem with it, but I always feel scandalized when I hear it on TV or Radio from News casters. It shouldn't be excused from them.

As a matter of fact, it has something to do with where your from. For Yoruba people, there is no H in their language, hence why some people find the hard to pronounce the 'H' sound or use the H sound wrongly. I used to be a typical example, i was taught the right way whilst working in a primary school as some children used to correct me which was embarrasing.

ezkus me ma malami

ma wondo is lonkashe

can hi go and jara it

Malami:

yes you can go an jara it

let's try to understand each other. as long as you got what the person is trying to say, it's all good. if you misheard what he/she said, and replied wrongly am sure you's both smile and make correction. life goes on.

This thread is about H factor, not "elu" and "emu" accents.

Its gotta be irritating hearing people putting H where it doesn't belong.

I think it's funny how people constant whine about H0-factor by Yoruba people when other tribes are guilty of worse offences

"Final Yah" instead of Final Yea[b]r[/b] by a certain group n ko? Abeg
