 The study about Nuer ethnic group is a major anthropological topic in universities today. Gordon sings to the world in Nuer language. With his music, he captivates many people’s hearts by addressing human rights abuses, dictatorships, oppression, and marginalization of minorities, tribalism, and nepotism. He is also a self-made ambassador and advocate for peace and reconciliation, good governance, and poverty reduction. 

An inspirational musician, Gordon was born in 1980 in Nasir County, Upper Nile State in South Sudan two years before the civil war broke out in Sudan. He was born blind, and grew up blind. He once told an audience: “I was lucky that I could not see the atrocities happen around me, but unlucky that I heard the babies cry.’’ He is very popular among the South Sudanese communities.
