Wave your flag

Although the official theme song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup is Shakira's Waka Waka, the song that have grabbed the imagination of the people is K'naan's Wavin' Flag. The song was chosen by Coca Cola, one of the official global sponsors of the event, to be their theme song for the World Cup. K'naan performed at the FIFA Fan Fest last Friday and drew in thousands of people wanting to hear him sing "the" song. In his own words, "I would never have thought while sitting in a little room in my house and writing this song that it would get so out of control. It's even been translated into Chinese!"


  1. I LOVE the song !! To me it's the best one !!

  2. His song ROCKS and beats Waka Waka hands down!

  3. Amazing Song. I really love it. This is truly an African inspired. Waka Waka if it was done by an African maybe it would have done the trick. I feel Wave your flag does justice and should have been the theme song. Thanks to Coca Cola for seeing the talent.
