Just a few questions have come from worldwide followers, so I’m simply pasting what I already replied to a couple individuals right here. The title of the track is a phrase used to when calling a lady, however it’s a derogatory one. It’s not utterly a curse phrase, and there are cases the place it it used amongst ladies themselves or mother-daughters in a joking means, however it’s related as to when some phrases can be utilized jokingly amongst the identical race, however is taken into account racist for others to make use of. [Jijibae (GGB)] is a phrase that trendy girls are averse to, and it’s particularly disagreeable when it’s utilized by a person. 10 to fifteen years in the past, it was extra generally used with the which means of “unhealthy lady,” and I believe that perhaps D&E additionally used it with such intention, however that’s an outdated and outdated mind-set for certain. I don’t know if my tweet might be translated properly [using a translator] however I hope that you just guys take word.
