That Cassper Nyovest reign just won’t let up.
Coca-Cola announced on Friday that Mr. Tsibip will contribute to the 2018 FIFA World Cup anthem. While American artist Jason Derulo has been commissioned to create the official soundtrack for the world’s biggest soccer tournament, Nyovest will indeed handle the localised version of the song.
That version will be released March 16th, 2018.
According to a statement, the song will be called Colors, and will celebrate ”all of the vibrancy and excitement that comes with the arrival of the world’s biggest football tournament.”
Coca-Cola invited a host of African artists from South Africa, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Mozambique and Ethiopia to work with Derulo in creating African anthems that would resonate more authentically with these countries.
Cassper, who is currently in Los Angeles, couldn’t be more thrilled. “Coming from a nation of colourful people this anthem will speak to South Africans as the song captures our passions for football and Coca-Cola” he expressed in the statement. “Working with Coca-Cola and Jason Derulo, has been a thrilling journey and we hope that this anthem will be well received by fans getting #Ready for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.”
A MAN WITH A PLAN
Towards the end of 2017, Mr. Tsibip made history when he became the first ever African artist to sell out FNB Stadium after shifting a reported 65000 tickets.
But not one to rest on his laurels, the Superman hitmaker has already alluded to intentions of taking Moses Mabhida stadium next. And in line with his promise to deliver more new music throughout the year, he treated his fans to snaps of a studio session with Davido.
