Blench gives the name Guus; the term "Sayawa" was the name issued to them by Hausa speakers "saya" in English means "buy", so Sayawa means "buyers" in Hausa. When Sayawa migrated from Chad to their present location, they were rich culturally, they were self-sufficient in farming and exchange of goods and services. Whenever Hausa speakers want to sell goods, they said "let's go to'sayawa' or'buyers' they will not fail when it comes to purchasing; that is. To Sayawa speakers, "Zaar", their real name down from Chad to their present location. Zaar means "Person of the land" meaning person of self relying on farming; the Sayawa are said to have come far from the east to the present Chad Republic between the 9th and 13th centuries. It is believed that they migrated together with the Jarawa, Warjawa in Ningi Local Government Area, Angasawa, Surawa and Mupun in Plateau state.

There are great similarities of language with Warjawa, Babur/Bura, Kilba and Terawa. The Sayawa language is one of the Chadian group of languages, it is believed that there was a strong relationship between Sayawa and Gobir because of the similarity of tribal marks. The Libyo-Berber civilization is given by Palmer as existing from 500 B. C. to A. D. 406 in the Hausa states of today. These were raided by Yemen Arabs about A. D. 900 and in A. D. 1000 by some Nien race, again in A. D. 1349-1385 by the Mandigoes. The Zaar left Ngazargamu with their relations, namely: Jarawa, Femawa, Surawa, Mupun, Babur/Burra. Margi and Kilba to various places but first stopped at Biu to the wilderness now known as Duguri or Yankari area; the area included the resent Alkaleri Local Government area and some parts of Bauchi Local area and Kanam Local Government council in Plateau State. It was from this area that sayawa divided themselves into various groups and proceeded to their present permanent settlements in Tafawa Balewa Local Government Area.

According to the interview with the Barayan Bauchi, Mallam Umaru Sanda in January, 1980, the Sayawa were living in various hills before coming down to low land during the Jihad as result of peace treaty with the Jihadist. The first group went to Mwari/Bogoro hills. In every settlement in the hills, there were more than ten clans. Members of the first settlement included Bogoro, Gwarangah, Gambar Zugum, Kurum, Tudun Wadan-Gyara, Yola, Mingil, parts of Basanshi, Malar, Dashem SongSong and Wandi; the second settlement, Dazara comprises 16 hamlets in Boi village and Dinki hamlets in Bogoro village. The third settlement include Sang, Zuya, Tafare, Lim Hamlets, Zango Malima, etc; the fourth settlement, Wadi/Sara, includes the Wadi and Sara hamlets and part of Rafawa, Lafiyan Sara, etc. The fifth settlement, Lusa/Sur/Dunga, includes Lusa, Malar, Gwaska, Gizaki, Unguwar Galadima, etc; the Sayawa call Tapshin Sur, because Sur is their original name and most of them migrated from there. There is another Sur close to Lusa and it is believed that their offspring are the people of Tapshin.

Neighbours from the southern parts, Angas, call Sayawa "Morgi"; the real name for the ethnic group is "Zaar" the Hausa call them Sayawa, the Jarawa call them "Barawa" and the Angas call them "Morgi". Others from the eighth settlement include Zari Babba, etc.. Zari is the only Sawaya town; the ninth settlement, includes the remaining Sayawa speakers in Boi village, apart from the Dazara hamlets.
