Literal translation- fo(break) ka(wide apart, everywhere), si'be(there). It's a Nigerian word that's gaining popularity by the minute.

typical use: ori e, o fokasibe (your head is spread everywhere)

when voodoo priests want to 'use a person's head for a native ritual', they would look into their oracle calabash (gourd or bowl) and if your head was seen inside it (as seen in a crystal ball), it couldn't be used for the ritual. So your head being everywhere meant your head is so good, no babalawo can use it.
ori e, o fokasibe.
