During the launch on Saturday, Akuol called on female singers to join the music industry. She said music has power to unite and rebuild social fabric of South Sudanese.

“As female artist I must compose songs that build the nation and express the greatness of South Sudan as a country to the outside world,” she said.

Akuol appealed to the artists in South Sudan to support one another for the industry to achieve its objective by encouraging the upcoming artists to sing songs that promote unity.

Abraham Jok Aring who spoke on behalf of the family of the female artist Akuol, thanked all South Sudanese who attended the occasion.

“It was not easy to come out in such a large number, this clearly shows that there is great love and culture of support and solidarity in Uganda among South Sudanese,” he said.

Abraham Jok urged South Sudanese to live in peace saying only those who are peaceful can compose peace-promoting songs.

He appealed to the parents not to interfere with the talents of their daughters who want to join music industry, adding that music was great fashion that needs to be supported by all means.

Brigadier Gen Majier Abdalla Mabior, a husband to Akuol, called on parents and guardians to give freedom to their loved ones, particularly the female artists to explore their musical talents without challenges.

He said South Sudan needs such diversity to be explored without discrimination, adding that nation-building requires collective efforts from all sectors.

Mabior thanked supporters and music promoters for standing tall with the family and the entire South Sudanese musicians who express their talents through singing.
