What is the Message in the Song Warota People?
The beginning of the song tries to point out that we should try as much as we can to avoid arguments or confrontations with people who will pick on our faults and try to spread the word around that we are being negative. The song says that living in this world is hard. The second lyrical verse of Warota People is very interesting because it questions the validity of treating fake news as if they were real news. Is there a criminal investigation or witch hunt? The song is making a reference to now former US President Donald Trump because this is typically what he does, questioning the investigations into his campaign. He frequently took to Twitter to criticize and berate Robert Mueller at every opportunity. Politics aside, the song is also trying to bring across the message that it is up to each of us to shift our awareness and consciousness to looking at opportunities in this world instead of focusing on problems. We will not cause any trouble by being proactive, focusing on solutions and opportunities and we will be happier people. The problems on the other side of the shore are other people’s business and we should just flee these kinds of people at every opportunity.
