How is it pronounced? I havent watched the video.

Emi is spirit or soul in yoruba.

In Akwa Ibom language, it would be pronounced as "Ami nya do"(I know I didn't get that correctly) and it would then mean "I will be somebody"

Hope it helps

theimmortals:
Its not only emi nado, limpopo, azonto, skelewu, alingo, etc
i need to know their meaning too
Skelewu is a made up word (have a good time), I think limpopo is a made up word too (let's have fun), alingo is another made up word (some sort of dance moves), azonto is a Ghanian dance etc.

Eminado is a charm often tied in the hand. It brings luck out of love
