K'an b'u fo

What is “K’an b’u fo” without concatenation ? I am pretty sure it means ‘we greet them’.

Without the “contraction” (as the use of apostrophes is known in English), it would be:

Ko an bɛ u fo

‘Say that we greet them’
(as in, “Tell them that we greet them”)

The word ko here is the quotative copula, which has a wide range of uses. In this case, it is used without a subject, but it’s implied that it is the person that you are speaking to (and asking to greet the others).
