The album, comprised of Part A and Part B, documents real life experiences from Nigeria and Ghana as he elaborates more on the musical influences which he has picked in both countries overtime.

While speaking to this website, Olisa revealed that he intends to use this tour to get closer to the fans, media, and the unique thrill of Ugandan music and melodies.

He also looks forward to understanding the Ugandan culture, music, and collaborating with the big artistes in the country, most notably Eddy Kenzo and Sheebah Karungi.

There are many big artistes that Africa has already known that are representing Uganda. The likes of Eddy Kenzo. I would definitely want everyone to keep their fingers crossed until these collaborations come out.
