It is a pidgin word that means Hello / What's up / How is it and it also is a South African slang meaning the same thing, Hello / What's Up / How is it.

South African greeting - meaning hello, how are you and what are you up to? Alternatively, I dont really have the energy to stop and chat with you, but take this Howzit as being friendly enough -thanks. also a clear marker for when someone is a south african.
