Hakim Releases Africa Cup of Nations Official Song

Egypt is highly anticipating the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON 2019). From the billboards to Egypt’s mascot TUT and TV ads of Egypt’s national football team singing with fans, the spirit is overwhelming.

And Hakim just added his classic signature vocals to the championship. The Egyptian folk-singer just released Metgamaeen, the official song for AFCON.

Hakim along with Nigerian singer Femi Anikulapo-Kuti and the Ivorian singer Dobet Gnahoré are set to perform at the opening ceremony. The artists will perform in three languages: English, French, and Arabic.

Other than Hakim, who can forget Amr Diab’s iconic performance in 1991?! In a polka dot shirt that has gone down in history, Diab performed Bel Hobb Etgamaana. According to Akhbar Alyoum, Diab plans on releasing a remix of the song that wil feature Mohamed Salah.

Other artists that will celebrate Africa during AFCON 2019 are Rolla Saad, Ayah Abdallah, Karim Abu Zeid, and Wanas.
