The word “Nkan be” is

a Nigerian Yoruba word that means “Something exists.” while “Labe Orun” means “Under the heavens.” In essence, Nkan be labe orun means something exists under the heaven. But in the context of this song, that sentence may actually be talking about a lady and what exists in between her legs.

So what is the song Nkan be really about?

“Nkan be” is a love song by Nigerian artiste- Lil Kesh and this features Mayorkun. The song is no doubt a love song to a lady. The artiste describes his girlfriend as the most beautiful and sexiest of all the ladies he has seen. He further says she is the kind of girl he wants to settle down with rather than flirt with.

The artiste hopes that his girlfriend’s love for him is not attached to his fame. He wonders if she would still stick with him when he stops being the most talked about musician.

The video vixen in the video is Priscilla. She is the daughter of famous Nollywood actress- Iyabo Ojo. I can’t count the number of times she changed cloth in this advert; it was like every scene, she wore a different costume. But they were all looking good on her!

This is a nice song. I love both Mayorkun and Lilkesh’s vocals; quite appealing to the ears. I love the demonstration or should I say “Dance” done by Lil Kesh and Priscilla at the 2 minutes 46 seconds of the song.

The video features Zlatan and Naira Marley. Zlatan, Naira Marley, Lil Kesh and Olamide all seem to be in the same caucus. What ya think?

Take a gander at the lyrics below
