We need an emergency response to save the planet. The song TIKA WE is a powerful call to action to address this situation. Everyone can take little steps to save the earth. "We must not waste water and avoid the use of plastic. Moreover, we must plant more trees and encourage people to not pollute the environment". Our blind assault on the planet has now come to alter the fundamentals of the living world.It is up to us to fix the problem before it is too late. The African meaning of the word TIKA is "Wonder of Life "
