Speaking to this website, Azawi revealed that the song is about being optimistic and positive about life, and believing that things can get better.
It is a song about affirmation, being optimistic about life, always being positive, looking forward to great things. If you want something, you should just say it and believe that it is gonna happen because eventually it will if you do believe.
Basically My Year is an inspirational song because we’ve been through a tough time and some of us are still going through it but that doesn’t mean things are gonna be like that forever. Things are gonna change eventually for the better and I just wanted people to believe in life and that things can be good again.Azawi
She noted that she enjoyed working on the project together with Michael Fingers who arranged the lyrics and sound of the audio.
“The producer behind the song is Michael Fingers, actually we wrote it together and he worked on the arrangement. Yes, writing music isn’t just about writing…there are people who arrange the song. You could write the lyrics so well but when their arrangement isn’t clean enough so a person that arranges a song is also a writer so we wrote it with Michael because he arranged it perfectly,” Azawi noted.
The visuals which have received applause from local music analysts and critics was directed in South Africa by a Zambian videographer.
Azawi was also amazed by his work. “The video was (directed by) Kenny Roc Mumba from Zambia. He is an amazing video director,” she said.
Before the year ends, Azawi shall have released more songs off her album which Ugandans are in great anticipation of.
Could be her year indeed. Fingers crossed!
