What does Wayment mean?

‘Wayment’ stands for ‘Wait a minute’

Ever heard the term ‘Wayment’ and wondered what it means? It’s a slang term that’s used when you uncover some interesting information and you need everyone to pause and listen up. It’s like saying ‘hold on a sec’ or ‘hang on a minute’, but a lot more fun and snappy.

‘Wayment’ is actually a fusion of the words ‘wait a minute’. It’s like you’re saying those three words really quick, and they all merge into one. It’s a term that’s been around in the Black community since the early 2000s, but it was only around the mid-2010s that it started getting more popular.

You’ll often see ‘Wayment’ used on social media, but you might also hear it in everyday conversations. It’s a light-hearted way to ask people to stop what they’re doing and pay attention to what you’re about to say or ask. So next time you hear it, you’ll know exactly what it means!
