Novo sounds Portuguese to me. It might have come from Portuguese. It means new in that context. It might be used more in the countries that border Brazil, where portuñol, a combination of Portuguese and Spanish is common. It is also be a misspelling of novio, which mean boyfriend or fiancee . But don't take my word for it, it just an educated guess on my part. Ask Carlos-F or someone from South America.

"The phrase is widely used in Spanish in legal and art contexts."

Take it with a grain of salt. You can find all kinds of dubious things online.
