Hilarious Lagos Traffic Auto $lang With Their Meanings [THIS WILL SURELY MAKE YOUR DAY]

Published by Staff_KMS 3rd Feb 2018

Nigerians would always be peculiar people. That's what makes the country fun and distracts us from all the wahala .

If you are coming to Nigeria or Lagos for the first time , this would be very helpful.

Here are some slangs we won’t stop saying anytime soon.

Go Slow

This is the way we say “Traffic jam” in Naija . I dey inside go slow .


Drop

This has two meanings, it means hailing a taxi and riding in it alone to your destination. It also means alighting from a bus or taxi.


Fockanizer

Well, nothing much to say here, it's Vulcanizer my dear people.


Rewire

“Rewire” is actually an action, the person doing the rewiring should be called an electrician, not a rewire, I tire for my country pipo!!!


Bomber

Its “bumper” folks , haha .


Men In Black

This refers to the police , the popo , the Nigerian Police Force .


Agbero

This word doesn't really mean something abusive, It can be translated as “Carrier of people /carrier of crowd”.But the madness of the Agberos has made the word abusive.So it means conductors, tax collectors, infact any tout and their species.




Alaye

From my little understanding of Yoruba , "Alaye" means “the living”, “alive”, “lively” ,but the way it's used is similar to the way Americans call their friends “N!gg@” or “Brah” or “Bro”.


Gberaa

It means “move” or “move fast” or “drive” .


Figo

Danfo slang for 500 Naira .I am still confused how they coined this name .


Shandi/Muri

Danfo slang for 20 Naira . Muri-> Muritala Mohammed on the note


Waso / Wazo

Danfo slang for 50 Naira .Coined from two out of the three major ethnic group’s interpretation of “come”.

Wa = Yoruba

Zo = Hausa

Bia = Igbo


Faiba / Fiber

Danfo slang for 10 Naira


Cut Your Hand

This one cracks me up every time .It means “turn the steering wheel”.
