W.A.K.A is an acronym meaning ‘Where African Knowledge Applies.’
The word ‘waka’ is a local Cameroonian slang meaning, “to walk.” WAKA
is also used to qualify something that is functional.

“I’m a staunch believer in Africa’s potential to be the
driving force of a new and healthy version of the world. It’s the idea of
motion, of mobility, of advancement that convinced me that WAKA would best coin
the spirit of the show.”- 
Tito Valery(Host and producer of the show)
