    "Shine your eye." Means be wise, be cautious, be smart.
    2. Not "Yash" it’s "Nyash"
    3. Not Ashewo it’s "Ashawo"
    Otherwise, nice.

  11. Chinaza Chibuikem on June 14, 2020 at 10:08 am

    The way she pronounces these slangs. She definitely never forgot the accent. Except of course the pronunciation of olodo. But she’s really good. Love this

  12. Kelebogile Paris Keotsenye on June 14, 2020 at 10:08 am

  18. Definitely Doing on June 14, 2020 at 10:15 am

    Funny, she left out Akata. Her friend Luuvie Ajayi must not have been there to remind her. 😒

  19. chikaodili orefo on June 14, 2020 at 10:15 am

    "U dey craze" is not a slang

  20. Uju Nwoke on June 14, 2020 at 10:17 am

    Love❣💯

  27. 160p2GHz on June 14, 2020 at 10:22 am

    haha "my friend"… like Aussie’s "mate". If they’re calling you it directly there’s an 80% chance they aren’t that pleased with you right now.

  28. Keneisha Fountain on June 14, 2020 at 10:23 am

    Love her!!!

  29. Nubian MC on June 14, 2020 at 10:23 am

  37. Fiyin Adesina on June 14, 2020 at 10:36 am

  38. sgreeni on June 14, 2020 at 10:38 am

    Lover, sounds so similar to what some Caribbean people say.

  39. Sharese Hall on June 14, 2020 at 10:38 am

  40. Reyes Ebana on June 14, 2020 at 10:39 am

  41. D & A Consulting Services on June 14, 2020 at 10:40 am

    Not "everlasting" life 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  42. Mind of a Fangirl on June 14, 2020 at 10:41 am

    ‘my friend’ is one of the most terrifying phrases that could come out of and elder’s mouth

  43. Daju • on June 14, 2020 at 10:41 am

    Yvonne you tried wella….. ur Nigerian accent is mad oh 😄🔥

  44. Robert Edwards on June 14, 2020 at 10:43 am

  46. Princewill Madugba on June 14, 2020 at 10:45 am

    No shey, sha, ba, Shebi??

  47. Yuriko on June 14, 2020 at 10:45 am

    This was funny, but she pronounced almost all of them incorrectly. Nigerian languages are tonal

  48. MGEE on June 14, 2020 at 10:46 am

    Her laugh is contagious asf

  49. Kenneth Uyabeme on June 14, 2020 at 10:48 am

    Lol Igbo girl, her pronunciations of some of the more Yoruba slangs are kinda off or as we say in Nigeria "e miss road". She’s amazing though so I’ll give her a pass.

  50. Reyes Ebana on June 14, 2020 at 10:48 am

    She made my day
