ͻdabrabafoͻ

[Asante Twi, Akuapem Twi, Fante]

Refers to a person who is a liar, an impostor or a deceiver. In Fante, it is "ndabrabanyi". In Akuapem Twi, the "‎‪כ‬" at the end is dropped. The more common use is the synonym "‎‪כ‬k‎‪כ‬nk‎‪כ‬nsani" or "okontomponi". A derivative of the word is "nnabraba", which means falsehood, deceitful.

Variations: akonnua, akonnwa. A low stool neatly carved out of one piece of wood; Also the king's stool/throne( ahennua/ahengua). Origin: ɛkɔn, agua.
