In late 2010 Ray Baselala a soldier in the British Army went on tour to Afghanistan. It would be his most challenging tour not because of the situation on the ground but because his dad was sick back in Fiji.
‘Whilst serving in Afghanistan my Father became seriously Ill previous to this i had called him and asked him for his Strength as this was my first time To go to Afghan ! He said ” kua ni yalo lailai iko na lesu bula tale mai ! ”
This was enough to give me strength to face the daily challenges of Fighting the Taliban ! four weeks later i was summoned and told the news that my Father was seriously Ill an was put on the first flight home however he passed on before i got to Fiji ! This song is dedicated to Asesela Waqairoba RIP’
