In addition to Stewart Sukuma being a talented musician, he is also a Goodwill ambassador for UNICEF Mozambique and a social activist. He very often uses his art to educate, inform and empower the people of his native Mozambique. This song is in response to the rising violence, political unrest and surge of crime in larger cities. Stewart actually decided to release this song early because the situation in Mozambique seems to be escalating at an alarming rate.
There was recently a manifestation (protest) in Maputo, Mozambique in response the violence. Stewart was excited to see such a reaction. As the song says, we too often 'look.. then do nothing at all.' Why is a song about action. We must react when we see injustice in the world. As Gandhi pointed out to us many years ago, WE must be the change we want to see in the world.
