Why not experience the Culture of the World's Fastest Man

As a Jamaican, I am pleased to take this opportunity to present this article to the Global Audience and hope that you will find it inspiring and informative.

Jamaica is a little island in the Caribbean, with a population of about 2.5 Million people. Jamaica is said to be the land of Wood and Water. The colours in the flag are:

  • Black
  • Green
  • Gold

It is said that the colour BLACK represents hardship, GREEN represents Green pastures, fruitfulness and GOLD represents the lovely sunshine.

We have a rich culture in Jamaica. We produce some powerful people in all forms, from athletes to actors (comedians), singers and many more.

Jamaica is very close to the Spanish Country, Cuba. Our official language is English. We have our favorite Dialect which we refer to as PATIOS. (Pat-wah) or CREOLE. Some people might argue that Patois is a language, some say its bad English or broken English. In my opinion, regardless of what it is, once you understand this dialect then you are on your way.

As you continue to read this article, I will present to you some useful videos so you can watch and listen, so as to get a grip of the culture that the world fastest man is a part of.

Patios Translated to English

Here are a few Pat-waas translated to English.

This is a video of one of our Jamaican icons, talking about our creole (pat-waa).


How yuh do? ------------  How are you?

Weh yah go?------------ Where are you going?

Wah yah talk bout? -----------------What are you talking about?

Lawd a massi------------------- Lord have mercy

Ku pah yuh tu------------------- Look at you

Mama, mi hungry ------------------ Mom, I am hungry

Gi mi pass --------------------- Excuse me or Get out of my way

Tap badda mi ------------------- Stop bothering me.

Weh the American President name? ----------------What is the name of the American president?

Weh yah go tomorrow? -----------------------------Where are you going tomorrow?
