"Ayoba" is a slang term used by South Africans to express amazement.
It is derived from other slang terms, like "Ayeye" or "Ayoyoyo." It was originally meant as an approval/appreciation of good dancing, although the exact origins of the phrase are unknown. It is thought to have roots in Johannesburg township culture. It is however, uniquely South African and expresses delight, excitement, agreement and approval. It is also used as a greeting.
In short Ayoba means it's "it" like sometimes you hear that there is a new "it girl" , that it girl is ayoba, snoop would say "shes' the shizzle "if you know what I mean.
Ayoba doesn't have a specific meaning but it usually refers to different expressions, excitement,approval, its also used as a greeting(ayoba boss)etc...
Ayoo ba in the tamil vernacular (slang) is an expression of shock or great surprise - Ayoo ba
I think the IDIOT that says ayoba means to kill white people needs to get a life! I'm a whit individual and I have taken the time to google what ayoba means as it is great to know what the trems mean in our mother land african language and when I see his post right at the top of google I feel like why is nonsense like that even posted! That is so old and so stone age!! REALY TIME TO MOVE ON, DON'T YOU THINK!
I'm not sure who started using these words, but I find it extremely interesting that these two words are spelled EXACTLY like the same words in my language.
If you're Nigerian, from the Yoruba tribe, Ayoba is a contraction of Aya = Wife and Oba= King. So that word means " The King's wife or The Queen". The other word, Ayeye means " Joy, Celebration, Festivity and just sheer happiness". There you have it!
The term ‘Ayoba’ is an exuberant expression of general delight or approval, rather than a word with a specific meaning. It has its origins on the dance-floor, and is an evolution of expressions like ‘ayeye’ / ayoyoyo’ used to express approval or appreciation of good dancing. As with many slang words, no one knows its exact origins but it is believed to have evolved in Joburg township culture.
I think its a good slogan that shows a good expression
It simply means happiness or all these aspects that are more likely to bring about happiness in our daily living.
Ayoba is a saying full of pleasure towards something nice and interesting for example :the game went ayoba!!
