'Colo' originates from the word 'colonial', and was first extracted by the legend, 'Fela' Anikulapo Ransome kuti, Africa's greatest musician, to refer to a colonial, crazy way of thinking. He coined the word- 'colomentality', to refer to this retarded, loser thinking style that certain Nigerians adopted from their colonial western masters and the slavery years.

Now 'colo' itself is understood simply as crazy.
