|Sapa: What You Need To Know. by waxyung(m): 6:41pm On Jun 14|
As Netizens, one needs to master the use of some frequent slang to have beautiful conversations on social media.
These slangs are unavoidable because they’re now gaining currency as their usage keeps conversations flowing.
Words like Mafo, Shalaye, E choke and many others have influenced our conversation on social media.
They are like a code language that takes frequent social media users to decipher.
The new code word gaining stature on social media today is “Sapa”.
Nobody could say the origin of this word but its usage has given shape to its meaning.
“Sapa” means a state of being extremely broke or poor.
“Sapa” can also mean a particular stage in one’s life where even the barest minimum becomes unaffordable.
It can lead to sudden mood swing, confusion, depression, and unexplained sadness.
In other words, “Sapa” is just another fancy name for being broke or the culminating point of brokenness.
It is accompanied by intense suffering and a splice of hunger.
It is a gentle killer that can force you to become gentle, feeling stranded…and you can’t easily escape it.
In one of Wizkid’s song titled “Thankful”, the term “Sapa” featured in it.
The verse goes thus:
“Who no know, make e come dey know o
Sapa dey kill person o”
Globally, “Sapa” is a pandemic to the homo sapien race.
Acute Sapa can make you warm Eba.
Unarguably, “Sapa” can make you cook “confusion rice” instead of “concoction rice”.
You don’t need to be told about Sapa. When it hits you know immediately.
I once overheard a father telling his lazy son that “Sapa shall not be defined to thee, Sapa explains itself when thee gets choked by it”.
“Sapa” is that level when your brokenness is even broke.
So many word variations have been coined from “Sapa”.
Words like sapalation, sapacolate, sapatians, sapatarians, sapabena, sapasexual e.t.c.
All these words are coined to suit your “Sapa” narratives.
My favourite expression derived from “Sapa” is “Sapa bien merci” which has been agreed upon by social media users to mean “Sapa, please have mercy”.
The only antidote to this “sapacious” malady is for one to hustle.
Working hard will assassinate “Sapa” in your life and prevent its transfusion from you to the unborn generations.
May the long hand of “Sapa” never locate us.
Saying “Amen” is not enough. Accompanying it with hard work is.
……….because God does not work for you, he works with you.
