Must the data be in the African language or can it be in English

I have a confusion on what was ask to do.

I collected some data set on hausa names and I don't know if it's counts, and also should I translate them to English language.

I would have loved if projects of past winners are posted or accessible so that one could understand better want is needed and how.

Unfortunately, names do not count. They would need to be actual words in Hausa.

We do look forward to a submission from you!
