© 2016, Springer International Publishing.We prove that a nearly Kenmotsu manifold is locally isometric to the warped product of a real line and a nearly Kähler manifold. As consequence, a normal nearly Kenmotsu manifold is Kenmotsu. Furthermore, we show that there do not exist nearly Kenmotsu hypersurfaces of nearly Kähler manifolds.
