The song “2007” loosely put is about the 2007/2008 Post Election violence that was experienced across most regions of Kenya . The song talks about what happened during the post election violence and also about the triggers and potential triggers of the violence that erupted or will potentially break out.
The song also touches on the selfish manipulative trends that plague the Kenyan political scene. It is also a call to Kenyans to make informed decisions when it comes to choosing our leaders because they are who we look to for guidance at all times. The song is also a wakeup call for Kenyans to unite because negative politics tend to divide us further each day.
This song is dedicated to those who lost their lives or were injured and/or internally displaced amidst the chaos that ensued during this traumatic period. It is also a reminder that negative divisive politics can degenerate into violence in the blink of an eye and that it’s the common citizen who is affected most.
