Naija Slangs

It's been a while my dear people, not sure what's going on with the internet in Nigeria but on the news they said something about some satellite blah blah blah but all I know is MTN sucks! Even on my blackberry, the internet is not working and I am not the only one.

Anywhoooos! Today I thought I'd share with you some slangs I have heard the last few months. Enjoy:

End of Discussion - Honda iVtech (car)

Baby Boy - 1999 Honda Accord

Bulldog - 1997 Honda Accord

Parole - jumpoff/girl you are talking to or women hunting
e.g - "Ah, leave that one oh, that one na my parole" or "We dey go parole"

Kabash - praying
e.g "See as this pastor dey kabash"


Tear Rubber
- Brand New
Refer to Eldee's song, "big boy"..."tear rubber everything..."

Romesh - to yarn rubbish, an update on yarning okpaks
e.g - "ol' boy why you dey yarn romesh?"

Sule - idiot/mugu (apparently a serious insult)
e.g "This boy na sule"

Kparakpa - Vernacular
e.g "Abeg no dey speak kparakpa for this place"

Straffor/Piax- basically to hit it
e.g " I go straffor/piax that girl dis night"

Hammer - To blow up or get rich quick
e.g "Timaya don blow, e don hammer"

Soapy - To wank/masturbate
e.g "Omo, agro don catch me finish, man need to soapy"

Ororo - Expensive drink

Shekpe - ogogoro

I no dey see my period - broke
e.g "Bros, please you fit gimme 500 naira?" "At all oh, I no dey see my period"
(Gross)

Fall my hand - dissapointing
e.g "Guy why you dey fall my hand na?"

Park Well - Behave
e.g "abeg we dey public, park well jo"

Para - overreact
e.g "It's not that serious, why you dey para?"

Well that's all I have and I am sure there are many more out there that I have no clue about. In other news, its only God that protects us here oh. My coworker told me a story of how his friend got into a cab and the cab driver pulled over, whipped out a gun and beat her with it then robbed her. She ended up being in the hospital. My friend also told me that story and I wondered if it was the same person, he also told me of a chic that took an okada and he took her to the bushes and raped her. May God help us all! Have a lovely rest of the week!

One cannot even take public transportation for fear of being physically and sexually assaulted..

So depressing.

RocNaija said...

Some of these I know...
I'll be surprised if they still use them on the regular like that..
Seeing as slangs tend to re-invent themselves very often..
