On-Air Personality Zainab Fakunel, who got laid off from her job because of the “R” factor in her pronunciation, has landed a new job
Zainab announced in May 2022 that she was sacked due to her inability to control the factor which is common among non-native speakers of English
The new job she got is with Fresh FM, Lagos, and she has taken to social media to celebrate with her fans
Social media is currently agog in celebration as a Nigerian lady who was sacked from her radio job has landed another one.
Zainab Fakunle lost her OAP job due to the “R” factor in her speech which her former employers were not comfortable with.
An “R” factor in speech is the inability to pronounce the letter “R” properly. Some non-native speakers of the English Language who have the disorder tend to swap “R” for “L” or vice versa.
It was for this reason which was no fault of hers, that Zainab got axed by her former employers one month after she was hired.
But luck has smiled on her as she has landed a new job with Fresh FM, Lagos.
Sharing the good news, Zainab wrote:
I was crushed, I stood up for myself, yet I got knocked by many people, but I was undeterred and finally God in his mercies have vindicated me!”
