Weh Yuh Seh is a typical Jamaican Greeting that says hello, good to see you, I hope you are fine and let’s chat; all rolled up in one sentence! With this Fun Guide to understanding Jamaicans and Jamaicanisms, Melisha Camile demonstrates her love for the rock and all who come from it and gives the wider world a guide to embrace their Jamaican spirit. Having sold books for over 16 years I have seen similar products, but Melisha with her wide experience and unique style , combines the facts and figures, dictionary, phrases and trivia, jokes, old time sayings and the must have Anancy Story to make an excellent offering.
I take great pleasure in recommending Weh Yuh Seh…to di world !! Enjoy
