"Hervenly" is probably a misspelling of the English word "Heavenly".

Note that this song ends at 4:32 in this video. The video then starts again from the beginning without sound.

  1. From the traditional clothing that the children wear I believe that the members of Hervenly Kingdom Kids are from the Igbo ethnic group of Nigeria.

    Unfortunately, I've not been able to find any confirmation of this or any other information about this group. Please add information about Hervenly Kingdom Kids to this post or to one or more of their multiple YouTube videos. Thanks!
