What's The Meaning Of ''Emi Nado'' & From Which Language? by Melancholy(m): 3:09pm On Jul 16, 2013
Hello Nairalanders,the above question came into mind when i was listening to a new song titled EMI NADO from Tiwa savage ft Don Jazzy as one of our R&B diva in Nigeria. My curiosity for the meaning increased because am not a polyglot and it will be nice to start from somewhere. Well, if you ask me in my language (Yyoruba) to pronounce this word thrice, it a word that ridicule you if you choose to sing along with the chorus of this song in public. So guys in the house, I need to know.

Re: What's The Meaning Of ''Emi Nado'' & From Which Language? by kekakuz(m): 5:48am On Dec 05, 2013
this word originated from ancient ife kingdom
it was derived from the word emi na aado meaning i will av my turn on him or her.
the then slave master use to select the finest jewish slave to av sex with and the other slave master will often shout"emina ado"'meaning i also want to ssex her.
the jewish slaves who has no tru knowledge of yoruba people even unill date believed thatt the word means my love or lovers or someone that stays close to bring happiness.
in the early 17th century,they were liberated by oranmiyan who asked them to leave and go find a place to settle.he also put a mark on their head to differentiate them from the yorubas.
they left and settled in the eastern part of nigeria.a place we now call igbo land.

eminado became a part of their vocabulary to mean something that stays close or together to bring luck.


now u all know the history and fact you will never get elsewhere,advantage of being a nairalander
