    I see you can only deal with 5 out of 10. You tried though. They just bunch of ridiculous words.

    I thought Alupupu is Engine or electrical something that makes noise i.e Generator.

    Someone told me Agunbaniro is Youth Service (NYSC).

    Let me digress a little; someone please help, in the movie "Master Stroke", what is the name of the actress who acted as the press lady who requested an interview with Zack Orji?

    Well..i guess it could pass for that but ERO will be more appropriate for that, Engine, generator. Based on what i've heard from my grand uncles, thyey call motorcycle that word-alupupu.
