Originally Bwana, Bana is Swahili word meaning "sir", although it is also used in an informal settings, as a term of endearment among friends, similar to "man" or "guy"

Originally popular with East African Indians, the term has now been adopted by many South Asians and West Indians alike. It has also dropped the w sound as it was very light and often unheard by non-Swahili speakers.
