Magic Haijing , Xiamen Hotels First Blog Present.........












Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)(Esto es África) was officially chosen as the anthem of FIFA World Cup 2010. About this Shakira said "I am  honored that 'Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)' was chosen to be part of  the excitement and the legacy of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.





English version


Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)(Esto es África) will be performed by Shakira and South African group Freshlyground, at  the Closing Ceremony before the World Cup Final on July 11 in  Johannesburg Soccer City Stadium. It was written by Shakira and John Hill and co-produced by John Hill.


Spanish Version



The track, samples the chorus of the 1986 Cameroonian hit song "Zangaléwa", by Cameroonian band Golden  Sounds, features Afro-Colombian instrumentation, Soca beat and South African  guitars. The song was also based on Waka Waka by the Surinam-Dutch group  Trafassi. The song consists of rhythmical African sounds, and represents the  vitality and energy of the host continent. Indian music composers Salim and Sulaiman Merchant also collaborated  with South African singers Loyiso Bala and Eric Wainaina to record the  anthem for FIFA World Cup 2010.
