According to comments from those who have listened to the song, Trio’s verses are relatable to situations they are currently going through or have been through.
In the song, Trio talks of the challenges faced by celebrities in terms of misperceptions and exposure to the public.
Here is a snippet of one of the verses in the song:
“Trio leo mbele zako
Mtaani brikicho na landlord
Leo ametutingia padlock
Rent ya kama mwezi tano
Tangu ancheki kwa Mpasho na-
aniskie kwa radio Jambo..
hacheki vile tuna struggle
“We uliomokanga kitambo”
Ninahustle, hapa jasho, kila mtu nimwone za macho
Utadhani nilishinda jackpot, wasanii ni ka kuku za Sanford
Utazungushwa pale display ndio wanununuzi wakukiche
Wakikupenda, mafutani, uwekwe chumvi wakuminye.”
In the song, the high school student who will be reporting back to school in less than two weeks also speaks about balancing education and his music career.
