Knowledge and Curious bits

Words Words Words

So people don’t get confused about some words I’ll be using in posts… And so I don’t get stuck speaking Queen’s English instead of the sometimes preferable pidgin English, I’m making a dictionary of sorts. Please feel free to add your own jargon in the comment box below.

Also, this post is meant to be a dynamic post so it’ll be updated frequently.

Iyaf :- has/had –  jocular adulterated form of it has

Wahala:- problem

Jeje:- Yoruba- gently, without rush.

Mi:- Me

Mai ruwa:- Corrupted Hausa- water seller

Oya:- Alright

Wan:- want to
