Question Swahili or suajili?

What is the correct pronunciation in English?
I heard swähele, which I believe is correct.

What is the correct pronunciation in Spanish?
I heard suaghili or more often than not, suajili.

Any data on this?

My dictionary gives:
[swah-hee-lee] /swɑˈhili/

I agree with my dictionary.

The Spanish pronunciation of suajili is very close to the same.
