The phrase is all over Twitter. And what might surprise you is that people are answering this 'question' completely normally.

Here's how some people feel about seeing the phrase.

The gibberish phrase has been re-christened on Twitter for, 'What is your opinion on this thing?'

The phrase actually comes a YouTube video of a Ghanaian singer called Kawoula Biov who used the phrase first in his song.
