Could someone please tell me the meaning of this word and phrase in context please?
Someone I like said "No bubu I tickle" is that disrespectful or playful?
I could only find two meanings for Bubu one is cotton dress the other is likens the meaning of bubu to mumu meaning idiot or slowpoke etc.

What does the phrase 'na u sabi" mean?
Please tall me whether it's yoruba or igbo etc thank you very much smiley

Emi ni, mase beru - It's me, dont be afraid. or do you mean Emi Mi, mase beru - My mind [spirit], dont be afraid.


Ko sewu loko - There is no danger in trying (?) grin

whats the meaning of 'mu mi'

chichiwill:

As Yoruba intonation goes with the meaning
'Mu mi' can be 'Catch me'
'Mu mi' can also mean 'Drink water (i.e. 'Mu omi' in full writen)

If its with apostrophe, that means 'Mu'mi' (Drink water)
without apostrophe, it means 'Mu mi' (Catch me)
