Theme song: K’naan – Waving Flag

Like all World Cups before, the 2010 event has a theme song.  Joining many who have made a name for themselves as the singers behind the Cup is K’Naan, a Somali-Canadian poet, rapper, and musician.

Born Keinan Abdi Warsame in 1978, he spent his childhood in Mogadishu.  His family eventually moved to Canada, where they settled in Toronto.

With four albums under his belt, k’Naan is entering the world stage at one of the biggest events known to man.  His song “Waving Flag” was chosen as the 2010 Coca-Cola theme song.

Good luck to him, and enjoy the song!!
