Enwang (Enwan) and Uda are a Lower Cross River language of Nigeria. The two varieties are quite distinct.

Uda was the subject of a month-long intensive field methods course through CoLang (the Institute on Collaborative Language Research) in 2012 at the University of Kansas. The course relied on two native speakers from Nigeria.[citation needed]
