Listen to Olamide and Phyno's World Cup Song 'Road 2 Russia (Dem Go Hear Am)'

The two Nigerian stars link up for this Super Eagles anthem.

The World Cup is quickly coming up this week and, with just a few days before the first kick-off, we get this new Nigerian anthem from Olamide and Phyno.

"Road 2 Russia (Dem Go Hear Am)," which is being promoted as the official Super Eagles song, sees both artists big-upping their team and its star players—Victor Moses, A lex Iwobi, and Mikel Obi, all get shout outs—over a mid-tempo beat from Pheelz.

Olamide's recently taken part in another World Cup theme that's been making the rounds and getting tons of play, "Issa Goal" alongside Naira Marley and Lil Kesh.

The 15 Best Nigerian Songs of the Month

The best Nigerian music of the month featuring Olamide, Brymo, Tiwa Savage, Simi and many more.

Beyoncé's towering set at Coachella could well be up there with Michael Jackson's "Thriller" (a point she already made with Lemonade). Wizkid's own history-making sets were cancelled due to visa failures, a development which Nigerian music writer, Joey Akan, in his first story for OkayAfrica, concluded is a missed opportunity for Afropop. Maybe true, but then Beyoncé cancelled her set last year for private reasons only to make up for it with more goodness than anyone expects, or deserves.

Two more reasons to relish the genius of "Bey-chella" are the sampling of Nigerian novelist and thinker, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, from her essay "We Should All Be Feminists" on "Bow Down" and her riveting excursions into Fela Kuti's unmatched body of work by melding the bass guitar on her song "Deja Vu" with the horn and guitar arrangements on Fela's "Zombie"—as best a genetic reconstitution of Black and African music and cultural icons, as you'd find anywhere.

Read on for our selection of best Nigerian songs of the month.
