The song calls on all Nigerians to embrace peace, tolerance, and acceptance of all persons, irrespective of their unique nature.

On the track, Samuch sings:

“No matter who you be, abi where you come from, no matter what you represent, abi the work wey you dey do, join this dance, join this boat, make we stand for peace”

Songs with positive messages like this are much needed in Nigeria, especially at a time like this when the country is divided and in disarray.
