Chookar strongly believes that nation building is a collective responsibility. Inspired by the ‘Reachout Nigeria Campaign’ of her church; Christ Embassy aka Believers' Loveworld (BLW), and the yearning to contribute her quota to nation building, Chookar launches out as a solo artiste with a special, beautiful and simple song for Nigeria titled ‘STAND UP’ to celebrate her independence.
‘STAND UP’, with it’s contemporary highlife feel, is urging every Nigerian in Nigeria and in diaspora to disregard the mistakes of the past and present, unite as one and build the nation together.
