Nunya

What does Nunya mean?

None of your

Nunya, a contraction of ‘none of your’, is a slang expression often used to replace ‘none of your business’ or NOYB. Its roots can be traced back to the outlaw motorcycle club language where it was commonly used in the phrase “argo nunya”.

Today, this term is extensively used by the Gen Z population, in their social media interactions and text messaging. It’s a quick and easy way to say ‘none of your business’ without having to spell it all out.

You’ll often find nunya used in contexts like ‘nunya business’, ‘nunya bizness’, or simply ‘nunya biz’. All these expressions carry the same meaning – none of your business. It’s become so widespread that ‘nunya’ alone can stand for the whole phrase ‘none of your business’.
