Niseme
Explanation:
Ni is the object prefix
seme would be "sema", but it takes an e at the end because it's got an object prefix.

"Niambie" would also work.

'Talk about me' or 'reprimand me'


Explanation:
Talk to me could be 'ongea na mimi' or 'nisemeshe'. 'Niambie' could also be taken as 'talk to me' but it is more like 'tell me'.
