A team of top musicians from the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) last Friday launched the official theme song for the Black Stars at the head office of the Stanbic Bank Ghana Limited in Accra.
At the launch which attracted a number of personalities and the media, the musicians also presented the song and its video to the management of Stanbic Bank.
Stanbic Bank as part of their support for Ghana’s World Cup campaign, paid for the technical production of the song, which saw all artistes performed at no charge.
‘Shine 4 Africa’ was produced by Showbiz Africa and it features some selected Ghanaian musicians which include Kojo Antwi, Sarkodie, Noble Nketsiah, Samini and Obour.
Others are Edem, Sherifa Gunu, Efya, Qweci Oteng, Chemphe, Nana Boroo, Skinny Legend and Tic Tac.
Prior to this presentation, copies of the CDs were presented to the journalists and personalities who attended the presentation ceremony.
In a short speech, the Managing Director of Stanbic Bank Ghana Limited, Alhassan Andani, said, ‘As a bank, we have made our intentions very clear on our support to see Ghana succeed at the World Cup. We have already contributed to the government’s campaign to send supporters to Brazil. And when MUSIGA decided to prepare a theme song for the campaign, we saw it as another opportunity to bring happiness to supporters.’
He stressed that apart from the bank’s support for sports development in the country, ‘we also have keen interest in the creative industry. We are a major partner in the development of arts in this country. MUSIGA’s initiative is laudable and worth-supporting. Supporting the production of the song is yet another testament of our interest in ensuring that quality creative works see fruition.’
He hoped that Ghanaians would welcome and embrace the ‘Shine 4 Africa’ as the main theme song to support and cheer on the Black Stars in every home in Ghana, in Brazil and in offices.
He, therefore, congratulated MUSIGA for the initiative and hoped that more of those initiatives would follow soon.
