Am not smart in Sheng' slang but I still I support it for various rsons; main rson being,,Sheng *LIGHTEN'S WORDS, imgn you want to tell a friend to Stop Misbehavin without hurtin or embarrasin him/her. In the formal Kiswahili it's "Wacha tabia mbaya" which sounds unfrndly en rude,in sheng it wld be "Acha za ovyo" which is a bit polite
