about

'Wapime' is a phrase in acoli that means 'Let's test'
The song stresses the urgent need to test for Noncommunicable Diseases as an important step in prevention and treatment for a healthy life.
The song also gives a basic information about the major noncommunicable diseases including the myths and facts.

It's disunity and the assumption that this kind of diseases are no threat that is contributing to massive global deaths

The song also gives hope to all those battling any noncommunicable challenge and calls on the world to support the cause.

lyrics

Diabetes is a real killer
A disorder of your metabolism
It's not caused by taking sugar
Cancer is real and it kills everyday
When your body cells grow out of control
It comes in many forms

They say its no problem
But so many lives have been taken
They say it's no issue
But so many futures are torn apart

Come on and make a change together
Come on and take a step together
Testing for non communicable diseases
For a healthy life
Wapime wunu
Wapime ba

Cardiovascular diseases will kill you
Disorders of the heart and blood vessels
Respiratory diseases are diseases of the airways
And other structures of the lungs

They say its no problem
But so many lives have been taken
They say it's no issue
But so many futures are torn apart

Come on and make a change together
Come on and take a step together
Testing for non communicable diseases
For a healthy life
Wapime wunu
Wapime ba

This goes out to all of you out there
Suffering from any kind of noncommunicable disease
We love you, you are heroes!
Yeah

[In this dark journey
We are with you
We love you
You will thrive]×2
You will thrive

Show some love
We're calling everybody for support
Show some love
We're calling on the world for support
Show some love
We're calling everybody for support
