Expect to be hailed on with World Cup songs right now and one of the first off the mark is from Ziggy Marley.

‘Africa Land’ was written by Marley because the World Cup is going to be played in Africa for the very first time.

"The bible says 'the first shall be last and the last shall be first.' How fitting that South Africa – the last nation on the homeland to be free – is the launch pad for a global event that will showcase the rise of the African continent," said Ziggy Marley. "Africa Land is the song which celebrates that dream becoming true."

‘Africa Land’ has been distributed exclusively to African Radio and will be released as a free download at ziggymarley.com soon.
