What Is The Meaning Of Shebi
What Is The Meaning Of Shebi In English. Shebi, a Yoruba word, often referred to as a slang which is not. Because it is a Yoruba word. which actually means Right?
Yes that is the meaning of shebi. Right?. It is not Right but Right? adding the question notation because using the word is actually asking something in order to clear doubt, or wanting to be sure of something.
We can also use Do You Agree? Instead of Right. But both still means same thing. And I would like to use Right? because it is even short. So in short, Right? or Do you Agree? are the meaning of Shebi in English
Another Yoruba word for Shebi is also Abi? Though Abi now literally means a lot of things depending on how you are using it, what you are saying or the the sentence you are placing it.
I would be writing on that word Abi in my coming post. Since this post is about Shebi, then let’s deal with it. Abi how do you feel. I just gave you an example of how abi is used.
The Yoruba word Shebi, almost starting a sentence at least 90 percent of the time. but when translated into an English word, it ends it.
An example goes:
Shebi this belongs to you. Saying this in Pure English, It means This belongs to you Right?. Like I said earlier, Using the direct word shebi, it actually starts the sentence.
Its funny how most Yoruba words are now becoming slangs or normal words, for a everyday usage. Well maybe because Yoruba is actually an easy language, compared to any other language in Nigeria.
Even non Yoruba’s uses it. because its even becoming common and natural. So don’t be confused when you hear someone uses the word shebi?
Now you know what shebi means in English. So don’t get confused again. start using it. Shebi you understand, abi you don’t?
They are just trying to know their stand. that is to clear their doubt and be sure everything and everyone are actually saying the same thing. You have gotten the meaning of Shebi in English
