Agbèrò- Here’s The Meaning

When translating Yoruba words, it is important to take note of the tonal marks.

Agbèrò is a Yoruba Word for a tout or a bus conductor.

Agbèrò is a combination of three words, “A”+”Gbà”+”Èrò“.

A is a Yoruba pronoun that means We,

Gbà means To collect,

Èrò means “Crowd”.

Combining all of the above words together, we have Agbèrò. Which literally means, one who collects crowd. That is what the bus conductor does. The bus conductors of the danfo or yellow buses in Lagos are typically called Agbèrò.

Also, any Toutish looking man or woman with husky voice and harsh look could also be referred to as an Agbèrò.

Example:

1. Àwọn Agbèrò yẹn tún tí ń bere owó.

Meaning: Those Touts/ bus conductors have started asking for money again.
