You’ve mastered the Chiiieeeeew

You’re late because it was raining… a few hours ago

You don’t mess with ‘Djo libra’ (direct translation: ‘God help me / you’, meaning: vehemently against / absolutely not)

You know what it means to have ‘djimpi’, but you don’t actually know what djimpi is

You know people only by their nickname, including your own family

You can’t wait to ‘kore pagara’

You try to avoid ‘gròbògròbò’ roads
