In the song, she rallies Ugandans to do more in the fight against climate change, by reducing the use of biofuels and taking other measures to conserve the environment.

The national celebrations were held at the National Coffee Research Institute (NaCORI) in Kyetume, Mukono under the theme: “Water Is Life, Water is Food, Leave no one behind.”

Several other artists including Gravity Omutujju, Karole Kasiita, among others were part of the celebrations and put on thrilling performances for the hundreds of locals and other stakeholders who attended.
