In Zim slang, the words "warema" or "marema" means you are on to another level and doing marvelously well—so keep it up!

Note: 'warema' should only be used when you are talking to someone roughly the same age as you or younger than you, because in Zimbabwean culture how you talk is by default bound to respect.

The proper way to say it to an older person is, therefore 'marema.'


Example Usage #1:
  • Person 1 -- "Kutaura chokwadi warema!"
  • Person 2 -- "Ibhoo mufesi wangu"
Example Usage #2:
  • Person 1 -- "Pafeya chaipo mudhara Ginimbi marema!"
  • Ginimbi -- "Thanks, my guy."
