photoblog image Wayo!


"Wayo" means decieving  in Pigin I think in Nigeria. This was a sign I saw at a hotel in Lagos and the only thing that came to mind was how decieving some people could be in this town. Not to say that all Lagocians are decieving it's just that when they are they can be very decieving.

I really don't have much to say other than that so. Merry Christmas.

I might be wrong but I think the word you are looking for is wayo and not yawo.
I back blacktinkerbell on that one.. wayo is the word... Anyhows. you have a great time in Lagos...
Y'know it's only a minority of Lagosians that are actually deceitful... but then there are the lots the world over... each zone's got it's good, bad, and ugly... the proportioons just aint the same.
A\Once again.. I hope you have a wonderful time in Eko... My Eko!
