The third single “Oh Nagami” sung in Sumi-Naga dialect calls for unity among Nagas. The music video laments that despite so many bloodshed’s and sacrifices peace and unity still remains a distant dream. The song says that the only way forward is to forgive the past mistakes of each other,reconcile and unite among different naga tribes. For nothing can stop us when we are united. Towards the end of the song, it calls upon the Naga leaders to lead the young and upcoming Naga generations for a better future and for better Nagaland.
