Opira sings in Acholi-language and plays on a traditional Ugandan instrument called ‘Adungu’. He made this acoustic instrument into an electrical one. With some built-in pickups (out of an old radio) powered by batteries and two Sony HiFi speakers, he is good to go!

Opira Morise Kato: “This song is warning boys that if they want to get married, they first have to think about it carefully. If they decide to marry a girl, they have to follow all the necessary procedures, which can cause some sleepless nights…”
