Videos | Ghanaians & Nigerians get Patriotic with World Cup Theme Songs, Who Nailed it?

Yesterday marked the opening ceremony of the 2014 World Cup, taking place in Brazil. I’d be faking the funk if I said I was a soccer fan. Soccer is a religion in Nigeria and even the time spent there could not convert me into a fan, neither could my brother’s love for the sport or my college best friend who ended up playing pro, albeit for a limited time.

I do, however, enjoy sports in general so allow me to throw my support by way of these music videos, one from Nigeria and the other from Ghana, that show the patriotic African soccer spirit. May the best team win, and hopefully an African team.

Which theme song do you like best? Nigeria’s or Ghana’s?
