The song was written and produced by Draze, Born To Win features vocalist Ngonidzashe and Kenyan trumpet player Owuor Arunga (formerly with Macklemore).

This track is destined to be a unique cultural anthem, the song highlights his experiences upon returning to America, including being ridiculed for his accent and hair texture. 

The lyrics in this song are layered, with one prominent theme being the refugee’s story. Born to win officially played on radio for the first time on Zimbabwe’s top radio station Starfm’s show hosted by Dj MOX to a rousing response.
