The movie is a love story set during the Civil War and depicts the circumstances at the time, including the divisions and distrust amongst Nigerians that led to coups, violence and the desire for Biafra. The song urges us, in these present times, to live together as one, irrespective of our differences in tribe, tongue, and religion. The main message of “Let’s Live Together” is that our diversity is in fact a source of strength. “Let’s Live Together” is a heartfelt appeal to Nigerians to live together in peace and unity and a reminder that there is strength in our diversity as a people.
