This is a presentation of the paper authored by Olubayo Adekanmbi, Wuraola Fisayo Oyewusi and Olalekan Akinsande. When Nigerians text, tweet, post on Facebook or any other social media platforms, they tend to switch between different languages, the most common one being Nigerian Pidgin English.
The focus of this work was on how to identify sentiment from these social media messages.
This talk was delivered in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia at the ICLR 2020 “AfricaNLP Workshop – Putting Africa on the NLP Map” via the AI4D Africa program with support from IDRC, Sida and Knowledge 4 All Foundation
