i guess u are an igbo gal bt i must say u really try. Though, i am a yoruba guy bt hausa lang very interestn 2 me. Here z d logic i use.. In hausa lang der are rules and regulation just lyk english lang. Hausa lang make use of "Ka" and "Ki. D "Ka " z mainly use 4 male(which z refers to as HE) while "Ki" z mainly use 4 Female( which z refers to as SHE). For example. Yaya Sallah awunrin n ka?= how z sallah in ur place( 4 male). Yaya Sallah awunrin n ki?= how z sallah in ur place(for female). Hausa z indeed an interesting lang.

Zanshi Arewa?= the word zanshi do not exist but if what you are trying to write is "zanci" the meaning will be "I will/want to eat the north"

Secondly, inaso sia sabulu? = I want to buy soap.

So, you love the hausa folks this much that's why you wanna eat the whole north grin lol!
