The arrival of airplanes in Rwanda really impressed the people. Domination of the sky demonstrated great strength and they sing about them with a lot of respect.
The commentary above on the impression made the appearance of the airplane made on Rwandans is correct and in accordance with the song's lyrics which seem to have nothing to do with the wedding ceremony. Even though this song can be sung and danced to during the wedding ceremony, we cannot say that the two are inextricably linked.
