English term or phrase: JAYHO
In: "His father had tried in vain to save his son from his new life, begging him to leave JAYHO alone."
Context: the son is a new-in-business coke dealer.
I know that "Jayho" is no English word, but someone familiar with spanish-american slang may know what it is.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Explanation:
Jaiho seems to be a Chinese name..

There is a Jaiho at Harvard:
Jaiho Chung. Ph.D. Candidate in the Harvard University Dept. of Economics Department

I also know of a translator named Jaiho Cheng.

Cela dit, si votre texte est humoristique, je suis frappée par la prononciation de Jaiho -- de la proximité jail - jaiho.

Excellente réflexions en vrac puisque votre remarque sur la prononciation m'a fait penser à une solution qui me convient, à savoir: jaiho fait penser à jail, mais aussi à Jay (joint). Vu le contexte, je pense que le vieux Américano-cubain disait à son fils de laisser tomber la fumette. Bonne année !
