Answered by Stephen Mosley

No Kizzy is a slang term that is commonly used in African American Vernacular English (AAVE). It is used to emphasize the truthfulness or sincerity of a statement. When someone says “no kizzy,” they are essentially saying “no kidding” or “for real.” It adds emphasis to the statement to convey that the person is being genuine and not joking or exaggerating.

For example, let’s say someone asks me how long it has been since I last got a haircut. I could respond by saying, “I haven’t gotten a haircut in 5 months, no kizzy.” By using “no kizzy” in this context, I am emphasizing that I am not joking or exaggerating about the length of time since my last haircut. It adds a sense of authenticity to my statement.

In AAVE, “no kizzy” can be used in various situations to emphasize the truthfulness or sincerity of a statement. It is often used in casual conversations among friends or peers. It’s important to note that while it is widely used in AAVE, it may not be as commonly understood or used in other dialects or cultures.
