A South African origionated phrase that has significant meaning in the demanding society we all live in. Okes meaning men,blokes,guys,dudes. One can say that it categorises the acceptance of male behaviour. The phrase ultimately means "so be it" or "ce la vie" however has developed into a phrase that can be used as "you should have known," "i told you so" or "thats what happens..." Its lax and carefree manner when directed at someone justifies why some things always, just happen.
