Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)

I was waiting for the right time to feature this song.  I love Shakira.  She sings with so much passion and this song is no exception.  Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) was the official song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.  Here are some of the inspiring lyrics that Shakira co-wrote with her producer John Hill:

The pressures on
You feel it
But you’ve got it all
Believe it
When you fall get up
Oh oh…
And if you fall get up
Oh oh…
Tsamina mina
Cuz this is Africa

From what I’ve researched, “tsamina mina zangalewa” is a phrase taken from a Cameroorian hit by the Golden Sounds and means something to the likes of “come do what you came to do.”

So this time, we are feeding our SOULs some music in honor of our newest SoulMate, Fortune Mutiti!
