waka

verb;
to walk “Waka” is a word recognized by almost all Nigerians and is translated as “walk.” It is used in Nigerian pidgin English and understood by people of all religious, ethnic, socio-economic and age groups throughout Nigeria. For example, one can say "Di boy no waka for school". This translates as "the boy did not walk to school". The slight change in the pronunciation of walk to “waka” is due to dialect and different accents. However, the meaning is not changed at all as it is still a verb and used in the exact same manner in which walk is used in Standard English.
