CAF picks AFCON 2013 song

14 January 2013, 09:01

Nairobi - The Africa Football Confederation (CAF) has picked the song 'Sela-Sela' (Dance Together) by the international artists Wes Madiko and Zahra Universe as the official song of the Orange Africa Cup of Nations, tagged South Africa 2013.

The U.S. media company On-Spot Enterprises, through its record label Arusa Music Entertainment, will handle all the various steps until the release of the single, a local PR firm told the press on Saturday.

``It is our goal to make the official song of the Africa Football Cup of Nations be heard around the world to share in the challenges, triumphs, and spirit of community that comes with the sport of football.

``And especially in this, the largest tournament of football on the African continent,” says Rod On Jr, Chief Executive Officer and president of On-Spot Enterprises.

The song, 'Sela-Sela', has lyrics in English and Bantu and talks about the celebration and joy among all people, breaking down barriers that would hinder peace and unity.

It is a mix of many genres including pop, electro-house, dance, R&B, and African, making it very appealing to a wide range of listeners worldwide.

The continental tournament kicks off Jan. 19, with an opening match between host South Africa and Cape Verde.
