Hello all,

new here so "hi"

[color=#000099]could someone tell me which is correct , or if these are both correct, different syntax?

"k' a ma wo sha"

and

"Ka shi ma wo"

rough translation: "lets wait and see"

would appreciate a quick answer as you'd be settling a mini feud btw a Lagosian and Ondo-ian!! Pertinent stuff guys!

I guess they both mean the same thing. It however depend from where the speaker come from. The generally acceptable one should be (Kasi ma wo). But Kamawo sha may not be generally spoken by all yoruba, it could be limited to certain side of yorubas.
