Haffi

JM Patois Haffi

Haffi {auxiliary/helping verb}
this means: "have to", "have got to", or "has to" in world English and is, therefore, a concatenation of the aforementioned.

Mi haffi guh bak ous nau-nau. Mi brejrin dey wait fi mi deh bikaaz wi dey gon ab a bashment.

I have got to go back to the crib right now. My friends are waiting for me there because we are going to have a party.
