straight from the mouth of Ali G himself, in an interview with spin.com

Could you translate your catchphrases "booyakasha" and "wagwaan"?

"Booyakasha" means "listen up rudeboi everytin irie whayaso lickylicky ya wangagot fifiman." "Wagwaan" means "booyakasha."

Actually it is a Jamaican patois approximation of the sound of a gunshot- you hold two fingers in the air and shout "BOOYAKASHA, BOO- BOO- BOOYAKASHA"

Booyakasha comes from the Irish word "buíochas" (pronounced bwee ah kuss) which mean "glory to" "or praise be" as in "buíochas le Dia" which means "thanks be to god". Oliver Cromwell sent 1000s of Irish to the plantations in Jamaica, and a lot of Irish (or Gaelic as non Irish people know it) words made it in to Jamaican patois. Another example is "Irie" from the Irish verb "Eirigh" (pronounced "Ire - ee") meaning to get up.

Don't know what it means but Ali G didn't make it up. Rapper KRS-One shouts it out at the beginning of "Keep Their Heads Ringin'" by Dr. Dre. In 1995. Before Ali G. Probably Jamaican roots then...

Actually, since Ali G is Jewish and comes from Israel it means something totally different. In Hebrew there's a world called BEVAKASHA - which means 'Here you go' basically. So he made it into BOOYAKASHA.
