Hey Okes!

Southafricanisms is the topic and today's letter is O.


Oke, ou [prounounced oak or oh].  An informal  Southafricanism meaning a man, similar to "guy" or "bloke" or "dude" derived from "okie" the anglicized form of the Afrikaans word "outjie" or little chap.  The word "ou" can be used interchangeably.

Usage : You can never stay befuck with an oke you smoke nchangu with.

Interesting. I had some idea of some version of the name, but now I know a lot more. Thank you for that, and great choice for letter O.
