#DeeReview: Konkani-Hindi Rap ‘Bebdo’ By Kav-E


Mumbai-based rapper Kav-E has rightly justified his stage name with his latest drop ‘Bebdo’. The beautifully sung track is a bilingual storyteller that captures intricate personal details of the artist’s life. Kav-E has penned lyrics in his native tongue for the first time with this drop. He reveals the song is inspired by the classic with the same name sung by Lorna who was called the ‘Goan Nightingale’.

‘Bebdo’ is a track that shows the state of a heartbroken lover resorting to alcohol and other substances. Well, the literal translation of ‘Bebdo’ is a drunkard. The music video for the same has been shot by Nikhil Vaiude and edited by him and Anmol Gawand aka E.M.F. Kav-E’s own younger brother has acted in the video, which we must say was remarkable.
