There are several slangs that are popularly uttered in Yoruba land. Sometimes, one can get confused about which slang is which. Today, I will look at what the meaning of Gbewá is.
Gbewá is a Yoruba slang that means, “Bring it to me”.
Gbewá means “Bring it” once again. It is said by someone telling another person to bring something to them. Maybe a book is on a bench and I want someone to bring it to me where I am sitted, I will say to the person that, “Gbewá..”. That means the person should take up the book and bring it to me.
Gbewá is not a verb though. Rather it is a statement.
It is a combination of two words, “Gbe” and “wá”.
“Gbe” means “To carry”
Wá means “To come”.
1. Ṣé ọmọ yẹn ló ǹ ṣe eré ipá yẹn?! Bá mi gbewá!
Meaning: Is it that child that is playing so roughly?! Help me bring her/him!
Pronunciation of Gbewá: gbay-wah
