One can tell that the song is Inspired by true life events from the lyrics and the book of Galatians 2:20 which reads,

The rapper had this to say on his YouTube channel after launching the song,

“After a 3-year hiatus from music, the Lord has led me back to active hip-hop ministry and I do have a lot to get off my chest. This is a celebration of the power of God‘s forgiveness and the beauty of His grace by which even the vilest sinner can get a clean slate and start over…The old me is Dead and Gone…Glory to God!”

Some of his music includes King’s Mic, Tazama, Wape Habari, Wernono Anthem among other songs.
