He said after listening to Loka’s story he thought it is wise to do a song and help in motivating others using his God given talent.
“The song has been produced as a tool to inspire and motivate secondary school students to work hard in their academic endeavors if their dreams are to materialize. However, I have used Chris Loka as a practice example because his story is also touching, looking at where he is now, one would think he did not face challenges during his childhood but he did.
“He wrote Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examination for four times to find his way to Chanco. He sold Tomatoes, Dry Fish and provided car washing services at Kawale in Lilongwe but still he did not lose hope until he become what he wanted to become in life,” he said.

“Music has every right to be called a universal language, a socially connecting glue and an attention-grabbing megaphone with which messages can be sent out into the world. When you think about it, music carries quite a heavy communicative responsibility on its shoulders and I believe this motivational song will reach necessary corners,” he said.
Loka further urged young people to listen to the song and share so that others can learn one or two things.
He said the song also exalts God for his faithfulness and unwavering love each passing day.
Apart from distributing through social media platforms, the song will be available in various music outlets.
