Get the ali bomaye mug.
it means "Ali kill him!". At the Rumble in the Jungle in 1974, when Muhammad Ali fought George Foreman, the crowd was pro Ali, so they were shouting "Ali boma ye" (boma = kill; ye= him) but today many English speakers misspell it as bumaye or bomaye. However, it's not one word, it's indeed two words.

Get the Ali Bomaye mug.
“Ali Bomaye” means “Ali Kill Him” in Lingala. Boma means “to kill” and Ye means “him/her”. Which is translated from Lingala; a Bantu language spoken in Angola, The Republic of Congo and Democratic Republic of Congo.
Tonight, the Congolese supporters of Muhammed Ali chanted “Ali Bomaye!” during the “Rumble in the Jungle” fight.
