The recording at the center of this item is a Shilluk song. King Kwongo Daak is the present Shilluk King. The Shilluk King is considered to be of his maternal uncles’ village. And after his installation, he is expected to build his village in the area that belongs to his maternal uncles. But King Kwongo decided not to build his village in Wadajwok from which hailed his mother. He built it in Thworo. In this song, the composer is saying that the people of Thworo are ready to serve the King. And that they will cultivate dura for him because he is their King. The song says that those who oppose Kwongo are just like a crocodile that lives in seasonal river, and cannot come to the Nile.
