Correct pronounciation is 'Lang Lang'.

Nang is very close to Lang and is sometimes misheard.

Nangnang is Teochew or Hainanese. If you can provide the song, we can help further. But the correct pronunciation is Langlang in Hokkien.

PS: 人人 is not the real characters, it's just an artificial pronunciation.

Thanks guy,

As a teochew, I never know nang nang is also in Hainanese.
