This song finds him reassuring the people of Ghana that he'll return to the country of his childhood as he is the Chosen One. Asked by The Guardian if he is being a tad messianic, Fuse replied citing the song's lyrics: "I said: 'Even Jesus did the same, so I'll die for you and take your pain.' Jesus traveled to change lives."
