With less than a month to go before the world cup in South Africa, different countries and artists are releasing songs to support thier teams. 2 of Nigeria’s brightest stars Banky W and MI jump on K’naan’s Wavin’ Flag for a naija makeover to support the Super Eagles and Nigeria. This official Nigerian remix was licensed and commissioned officially by Coca Cola so its not an “Unofficial Remix”.
For those who have been following the South Africa world cup preparations, you know the “fiasco” about the SA officials changing the OFFICIAL WORLD CUP song from K’Naans “Waving flag” to Shakiras “Waka Waka” . We always say that Africa music needs to be heard across the seas and borders and this is one example where we could use the soccer platform to showcase the musical talent we have in Africa, but instead we are “promoting” and showcasing other artists. K’Naan definitely deserves the official song spot. However, since the Shakira’s song (Feat South African band Freshly Ground) was selected by FIFA as the official anthem for the 2010 World Cup, tons of African radio stations have stopped playing it insisting that “Waving Flag” was a better representation of Africa.
Anyways enjoy this Naija anthem in support of thier super eagles.
