Lebu people information

The Lebu (Lebou, Lébou) are a subgroup of Wolof in Senegal, West Africa, living on the peninsula of Cap-Vert, site of Dakar. The Lebu are primarily a fishing community, but they have a substantial business in construction supplies and real estate.[1][2] They speak Lebu Wolof, which is closely related to Wolof proper but is not intelligible with it.
