The song is a mix of many genres including pop, electro-house, dance, and African, making it very appealing to a wide range of listeners.

The anthem will be available for downloaded from Samsung Facebook pages in, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa.

Kenyan football enthusiasts also have a chance to win exciting prizes from Samsung by participating in a social media competition, where they are required to upload their videos while singing the Samsung football anthem.

"Africa, this is your chance to reveal your talent to the world. We want you to be the voice of the continent, so get involved. Music and football are core to what we stand for. As Africa people, this is a great way to show your pride and passion," says Don Jazzy.
