'Waka Waka - This Time for Africa'The "official song" of the FIFA World Cup 2010 is a song called "Waka Waka - This Time for Africa." Colombian-born international star Shakira will sing the song, backed up by the Cape Town fusion group Freshlyground.

So what is "Wavin' Flag"?

The official "Waka Waka" song is not to be confused with a song called "Wavin' Flag" by Somalia-born K'NAAN, which is the official Coca-Cola song.

In an interview with MSN.news, K'NAAN is careful to point out that:

"Wavin' Flag" is not the "official" song of the global soccer extravaganza. Still, he has a sense that it will ultimately be the tune that everyone associates with the event.

"There are a few World Cup songs. What I did is in fact the Coca-Cola anthem for the World Cup, so we can't really call it THE World Cup song."

In other words, you'll hear the former at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2010 World Cup games, but you'll be tapping your feet to the latter during many a commercial break.

(To hear both of these songs, and to read the interview with K'NAAN on MSN, see the Related links. And for other information, and to see an interesting video on the origin of the "Wavin' Flag" video, see the Related questions.)
