The song is a collaboration between and Accra-based producer, Dream Jay. A spokesman for Kenkeyandfish said

”The idea is to use music to communicate important messages, which will be important in the fight against the Coronavirus”.

Soww Ffar said ”I was asked if I would like to do a song and I didn’t hesitate. I chose social distancing as my topic to address because it is people like me that this song speaks to.

I spend a lot of time in the studio often with friends and this song is saying those sorts of gatherings need to stop”. About the lyrics to his song, he said ”the main message is the importance of social distancing.

The lyrics explain social distancing as the new love. In other words, if you really love someone, the staying away from them is now the way to show your love, because that is what will keep us all alive”.
