Nigerian Pidgin is that informal ‘official language’ that almost all Nigerians understand. It is neither formally taught nor learned as one would learn Arabic or French, but it is passed down from generation to generation and can be picked up by anyone, so long as you have heard it being spoken.

Whether it is a lover, a sibling, or a friend, you want to tell “I love you” in Nigerian Pidgin. We advise you to say it from the heart.

Now see the common Nigerian Pidgin English statements you can use to tell your loved ones I Love You.

Yes, they all communicate the statement “I love you.” However, not all can be used for every friend or sibling.

Be discerning enough to pick an appropriate statement for the right person and the right occasion so you don’t come off as weird. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

We’re sure you don’t want to tell your male friend, “Your love dey shack me,” if you’re a man.

A simple “I dey feel you” would suffice to express that you value the person and can be your way of saying I love you in Nigerian Pidgin.
