Sco Pa Tu Manaa is a slang phrase that has a variety of meanings in multiple languages, including "I’ll hit you" and "what experience does this remind you of" In Spring 2019, the phrase went viral after being included in Ghanaian musician Patapaa's verse on the song Davi. Following the song's release, people began posting images with the phrase as a caption, which could be a reference to the song or a way of asking followers their experiences with the subject of the image.


On April 3rd, 2019, Ghanaian recording artist Kawoula Biov released the song "Daavi Neba." The song featured a verse by fellow artist Patapaa. Within two months, the video received more than 629,000 views (shown below).

According to the website,[1] the lyrics to the verse read:

till patu pataa
skoska to mana
till da pop dada
sko pa to mana
filo di si dadaa
kati don panpana
ma don go don
ma ga da zen zen
na dan bam badan
ko danko kedo
kra po aba
tsu seyy


Following the release of the song, people began recording videos of themselves attempting to sing Patapaa's verse. On April 25th, 2019, YouTuber GOLDEN TV posted a compilation of the "SKOPATOMANA CHALLENGE." Within two months, the post received more than 170,000 views (shown below, left).

That day, YouTuber Vibez TV published the video "OMG!! Patapaa New Song 'Skopatumana' Challenge Goes Viral." The post received more than 22,000 views (shown below, right).

On May 1st, 2019, Twitter [2] user @MercedesSlimBoy posted the phrase with a picture of a sign that reads "Run for Your Life Int. Chapel" (shown below, left).

According to the website,[3] this is in reference to the phrase's meaning "What experience does this remind you of." However, it appears as though this can also be used as a shitpost inspired by the confusion surrounding the lyrics. They also note that the phrase "originated from Hawaiian language" (examples below, right)

Some online attempted to explain the phrase's usage due to the fact that so many people were confused by the meme.
