mutupo​


in the context slang means very expensive wine (waini) or liquor (chapomba) that an average person can't afford to make a purchase on a regular basis because this will turn their financial health upside down completely.

Note: The formal meaning of mutupo in chiShona language is "totem" but in this case, I am talking about slang as aforementioned above. The opposite of mutupo is something like masese (sorghum beer), brown bottle (lager, ale, and stout beer), musombodhiya (moonshine), etc.

Example usage:
Person X: "Murikumweyi?"

Person Y: "Mutupo asekuru hausikuona here, mutupo unoyera unozodei."

Person X: "Ahyas, asi matengerwa kani, muri vefreezit budget ka imi."

Person Y: "Hona watanga twumasasi twako twusina basa."

Person X: "Hahaha, but chimbondipawo ka ndimbotondodza pahuro."

Person Y: "Bata nepapa wangu."
