It can well be assumed that this socio-cultural behaviour was handed down from the first African ancestors that crossed the Atlantic. This is evidenced by its prevalance and common use across almost all Western and Central African cultures. There seems to even be certain body languages that accompany it which when seen in the Carribean are almost identical to those found in Western and Central Africa today. These may be but are not limited to hand/ shoulder movements, eye movements and facial expressions.
