January 3rd, 2014 – Hollywood Actress Kerry Washington Tweets In Igbo Language

Proud Igbo wife, Hollywood actress Kerry Washington shocked her fans yesterday when she sent across a tweet written in Igbo language.

Check out what she wrote.

“Afo gbara aka laa o!”

I don’t understand Igbo but her fans really appreciate it.

For those who do not know her, she is the wife of Nigerian-American footballer Nnamdi Asomugha.

Can someone please interpret the tweet?

    afo means year, gbaraka means empty hand,then laa means go back/go when igbo people say this at the end of every year, what they make is a kind of prayer utterance, meaning that the outgoing year should not take any thing good away from them,especially lives.
