It’s that time once in four years I start playing football instead of cricket. Football has never been my game, but when the Football World Cup fever gets to me, my feet auto-magically starts kicking the ball around the park. The 2010 FIFA World Cup starts on the 11th June which is like couple of weeks away. The heat has got on to all the football fans already. Even the people who have less interest in football have felt the heat after listening to the version of “Wavin’ Flag” (The Celebration Mix) by K’Naan which has become quite a hit these days . Let it be on radio stations or even in the ring tones of mobile phones, you will hear it where ever you go. The funny thing is its not the official song, but it has reached the people and fans alike since this year’s World Cup will be played in South Africa and this version of Wavin’ Flag inspires the celebrations familiar to Africa.

There is another version of Wavin’ Flag which was remade by a group of Canadian artists credited as Young Artists for Haiti to benefit the relief efforts following the 2010 Haiti earthquake which is much similar to “We are the World for Haiti” done by popular artists around the world.
