Ghana’s top musicians present World Cup theme song

A host of Ghana’s top musicians will present the official theme song for the Black Stars’ Brazil 2014 World Cup Campaign, to the Ministry of Youth and Sports and Stanbic at the Bank’s Head Office  today.

‘Shine-4-Africa’, which was produced by Showbiz Africa and MUSIGA, features leading musicians such as Kojo Antwi, Sarkodie, Samini and Efya.

Other artistes who collaborated on song include Edem, Sherifa Gunu, Noble Nketsiah, Obour, Qweci Oteng, Chemphe, Nana Boroo, Skinny Legend and Tic Tac, with a poetic interlude by Nenebi.

Shine-4-Africa was produced by three-time Vodafone Ghana Music Awards-winning producer, Kaywa, with support from Oteng.

The Black Stars had already been presented with 100 copies before they left Ghana for the World Cup.

Asamoah Gyan who received the CDs on behalf of the players said, “I am very grateful at this gesture, that our friends in music, who I am also part of, have made this great song for us. We will listen to it before every match.”

Stanbic Bank paid for the technical production of the song. The artistes offered their services at no charge.
