“I have a very special feeling about the coming of the pope. A lot of South Sudanese have been thinking and talking about peace so much, so I thought that I should write a song with an encouraging message,” he said.

“The message is to say that our suffering as south Sudanese is coming to an end. Using words of the church and encouragement so that our brother and sisters who are south Sudanese can feel about the importance and the presence of pope Francis is in South Sudan.”

Lifom dedication also says the coming of the pope will does not mean that peace will come out of nowhere.

He warned that the visit of the faith leaders will only be an indicator and encouragement in efforts towards peace.

“Some people believe that Pope Francis will bring peace to South Sudan, but I want them to know that Pope Francis coming symbolizes a shield for the people to know how importance peace is.”

“We can see how far the pope has traveled just to pray for peace in South Sudan. Truly everything will be easy once we have peace from the citizen, from the government, we should all have one goal and that is true peace not just peace that we say by words of mouth no real peace.”

LIfom Dedication, whose real name is Emmanuel Fuli, is also a footballer and a lawyer by profession.
