This word has been accepted by 103 Baku Men as an English Word. Its origin can be traced to the SA 2010 FIFA World Cup when our countryman decided to make a name for himself, albeit in the wrong way. The story is that Yakubu was the only man before an unmanned post in a match against South Korea and he made history. See for yourself.
|Yes, yes, goal!|
|Oh no he didn't!|

So, we waltzed out of the World Cup. Let’s give honour to whom honour is due. We thank you, Yakubu, for adding to our vocabulary.
I leave you with this – In whatever positive endeavour of yours, if you yakubise (3rd meaning), try, try, try again and you will succeed.
Good night, everyone! Sweet dreams.
