Video : Shakira Mebarak and K’Naan World Cup Kickoff Performances

Two BNW favorites took the stage at today’s Kickoff concert for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Shakira Mebarak performed She Wolf, one of BNW’s Singles of 2009,the record-setting Hips Dont Lie and of course, the theme to this year’s games Waka Waka (This Time for Africa):

K’Naan performed a reworked version of WavinFlag, also one of BNW’s Singles of 2009:

When I get older, I will be stronger, Theyll call me FREEDOM just like a WAVINFLAG

Seeing K’Naan revert back to the lyrics of the original WavinFlag at the end (despite Will.I.Am randomly waving a Brazilian flag) was the perfect way to open the first ever World Cup on the African continent.
