Also pronounced "azay" or stretched as "asaay" or "azaay". Asay is a Ghanaian Fante pidgin word used by close friends for addressing each other. Originated primarily from Takoradi. Derived from the phrase "I say", but the sound changed to "asay" by frequent speaking, and it ended up being an informal jargon for close friends. Similar to "Jack" or "Joe" in America. Recently re-popularized nationwide in Ghana by the Fante Rap trend by the likes of Kofi Kinaata, Pappy Kojo, and Tee-Phlow.
