In swahili "Karibu" is welcome


The Malagasy language has integrated many swahili words. "Karibo" here in Madagascar means "please enter (my home)", a bit like welcome!

My mother-tongue is Turkish!
"Hoşgeldin!" means "Welcome!" and
"Merhaba! Nasılsın?" means "Hello! How are you?" in Turkish.

In yoruba, Welcome is "ekabo".

Yoruba, is a language spoken predominantly in the South-western part of Nigeria. There are other people in countries like Benin Republic, Brazil who speak a dialect of Yoruba.
