Wàáṣere is a very common Yorùbá expression. Used to hail another person commonly. Wàáṣere is commonly written wrongly as Washere. It is not the correct spelling. It is “Wàáṣere” not “Washere”..
Wàáṣere means, “You will succeed/prosper/do well”.
Wàáṣere is more of a hailing statement. It is used to express gratitude to a person for doing something very well. And is said in a loud voice and exclamatory tone. You will commonly hear it among bus conductors/Agberos more than in the mouth of civilised people. The statement though common is a bit toutish.
