According to Urban Dictionary, the meaning of Sco pa tu manaa in Zambia, a country based on the African continent, has to do with “the duty to express one's opinion on a specific subject” ; no "sco para tu mana" or "sco para tu tomorrow", the Hispanic version of the meme that has created confusion among users of the aforementioned social network.
Other websites such as KnowYourMeme assure that the origin of the expression comes from Hawaiian, and that Sco pa tu manaa means "what does this remind you of" or "what memories does this bring you" . Google Translate tells us that its meaning in Hawaiian is that of “you will find it interesting” or “this is interesting”, so the first meaning will have to be given full credibility, as there is no online Zambian to Spanish translator.
