Waka Waka – 7 years ago or so Shakira came out with this song which became one of the national anthems for the Soccer World Cup of that year. Below, you will find a video of Shakira talking about how this song came to her and thus claiming that it is hers.
Zangalewa & Waka Waka
Zangalewa is a Cameroonian song. It is sometimes called Zamina undermined by the first words. It is part of the repertoire of soldiers as well as for groups of youngs and Scouts, throughout Africa. Its rhythm is catchy and it can serve as song march.
When I first heard Shakira’s song played on the radio I was in awe. I actually thought that someone decided to do a remix of the song. Yes, a remix. Because when I was a little girl, I heard that song plenty of time. And so that made me happy to hear the song of my youth on the radio. Yet, Shakira claimed, claims and will probably continue to claim that the song came to her. Here’s a video of the original song.
