What should have happened instead?:

The recent changes link is supposed to appear as "A'wanajaanüka yaawala", with an apostrophe and not with an HTML entity.

Other information (browser name/version, screenshots, etc.):

As far as I can see, the message is recentchanges, that is, the same one that is used in the core and desktop. It's a bit surprising because the usual practice in MediaWiki is to make copies of messages and not to reuse them, even if they are expected to be the same. By itself, the reuse is probably not the cause for this issue (or is it?), but consider fixing it along the way.

Encoding issue. Hopefully easy to fix.
