Which way/logo? Or How far? Or werin dey? Or Ao ur side? Meaning how r are you.

And in response you can say: i bam or no yawa or nothing o. Meaning you are fine.

Hold your side. You cannot literally hold your side. So here it means discontinue d . .. eg
Adam: eve abeg show make we get down na
Eve: guy, abeg hold ur side

It can also mean you are ok. Eg
Adam: eve no vex, i no get cash for d salon wey you wan go
Eve: no worry, i hold my side

Na wetin na? Meaning: is there a problem?

U chop winch? Meaning: are you a wizard?

Make i hear (word): meaning: enough of the nonsense talk.

Yawa/casala don gas. Meaning there is trouble.

Adam don soak. Meaning Adam is drunk.

"Abegi" is an exclamation like "oh please"
Eg.
Adam: na me go be president for 2015.
Eve: abegi, make i hear word.

You can use d expression "them no born you well" to mean "you are not man enough..."

Ksslib: Some of you Ajebutters might have heard people saying some of this stuff but had no idea what they meant... Well here are few i can think of...

1..You don see me finish: This is often used when someone you're much older than doesnt accord you proper respect.. Typical scenario:
Person; Hmmmmn! Who mess this kain thing na?
Small boy:: Na Brother luke
Br Luke::: I no blame you. You don see me finish

2..I dey H:: I dey H is a coded way we use to express hunger. The H there stands for Hunger and its pretty popular and very much used by quite a hadful.
E.g:: guy,you never cook cos me dey H badly o.

3..E go be na: This might sound strange hearing it for the first time cos its just a phrase that doesnt make sense.. But its a way saying later, till we meet again..e..t..c
Guy1:-Ok ma dey reach house.
Guy2:- Ok my guy.. E go be na.

4..Park well: Not only the security man can tell you to park well. Even those without cars in Naija do park well. Park well is used to dare someone..
Guy 1:- see, i go leave this bottle for your head oo
Guy2: bone that thing.. Guy i say park well.

5..Bone that thing: Yea! Bone right?. But it has nothing to do with the skeletal system. Bone that thing can be used as another form of park well in some cases, but its mostly used as just forget it..
Guy1: If i see rukewe, i swear me go land ha slap
Guy2: You big pass that one na. just bone the babe.
2nd case:
Man; young man i'l deal with you. You know who i am?
Boy: Oga dis one na just grammar. Bone that thing

6. I wan crash: Nope! It has nothing to do with plane crash so keep calm. I wan crash is the pidgin version of i'm feeling sleepy or off to bed.
Guy: you fit help me type this document?
Guy2: tomorrow abeg. Cos i wan crash so

7..I dey high table: Owanbe party freaks and those of you who love eating burial rice can easily identify with High table. But in this case, i dey high table is used when you're eating.
Guy: walks in and see's his guy eating**
Guy2: My guy i dey high table o. Con join me.

8..I go treat f.f.uck-up: has nothing to do with sex. Its used when you're planning to get back at someone who betrayed,wronged or annoyed you.
Guy: skippo no gree pay me my money oo
Guy 2: guy no worry. We go treat him f.f.uck-up

9..I go enter you o: Its logically/anatomically cheesy impossible for a human being to enter another human being but in pidgin it is. This is used to warn someone off an iminent attack from your part.
Guy: **Slaps him**.. You dey kolo. Who you be?
Guy2: **pulls shirt** you dey mad? Guy if you try am again, i swear i go enter you..

10. I don moose: But pronounced as Murze .. Star,Heinekein(spell check) ,Gulder and harp lovers use this line to express their drunken state.
Guy: why you dey behave like this na?
Guy; My guy i don moose.

11.Make brain: God is the giver of life alright. The brain is by far one of, if not the most outstanding organ. But we don dey make brain for pidgin tey tey.
Guy: ooh boy..See that mami water
guy2: oh boy.. see shape. She make brain die.

Happy new month..
Add yours..
