    Well, it basically means alot; for example I would tell my friend " Boy dats a serious wibe aye" which means a serious problem or situation/ conflict.
    Or it may be used like this "What da wibe is man?" This means whats going on, what the deal is. etc
    Most Bahamains use the term when arguing or talking about arguements. hope u get my drift. Any other Bahamains out dere help me with this, I may be missing out something.
