Kemo savy

Posted by Andy England on July 15, 2007

I would like to know about the origins of the slang "Savy", it obviously means "intelligent" or "on the ball" but I can't work out where this word has come from. The other day I also heard it used with the pre-fix of "Kemo" pronounced "Key-mo". Any ideas?
