Somalian Musician K’NAAN’s Song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup

K’NAAN grew up during the Somali Civil War while his father was in America.  At the age of 13 he and his family eventually escaped to NY and then Canada.  After performing a spoken word piece for the UN High Commissioner of Refugees Youssou N’Dour invited K’NAAN to contribute to an album and tour.  Eventually, he signed with A&M/Octone Records and began collaborating with many huge stars.

This is his Coca Cola 2010 FIFA World Cup Anthem ‘Wavin’ Flag’.
