The recording at the center of this item is a Shilluk song. In this song, the composer is challenging a young man who wanted to marry a girl, but he could not do so because he had no cows at that time. So, the composer puts the words into the girl's mouth saying, "My brother, announce the marriage. I would serve you". And she added that her parents would surely accept the request from him to marry their daughter. Then the composer decided to marry that girl, and she accepted him.
