The Africa Cup Of Nations 2015 Theme Song 'Hola, Hola'

Watch the anthem for the Africa Cup Of Nations 2015 from Cano, Molare, Manni Bella, Toofan, Eddy Kenzo, Singuila, Arielle T & Wizboyy.


The 2015 Africa Cup Of Nations tournament kicked off over the weekend with a tied match between new host country Equatorial Guinea and Congo (as you know, the AFCON location had to be changed after original hosts Morocco refused to accommodate the tournament due to concerns "over the spread of the outbreak of the ebola virus.") With a new tournament comes a new theme and for AFCON 2015 that song is "Hola, Hola," a cross-continental collaboration from Cano, coupé décalé artist Molare, Cameroon's Manni Bella, Togolese musician Toofan, Ugandan dancehall act Eddy Kenzo, Singuila, Arielle T and Nigeria's Wizboyy. Watch the soccer stadium-shot video for the AFCON 2015 theme song below. Many pundits have Algeria, who are coming off a strong showing in last year's World Cup, as their favorite for the tournament. Who's your pick?
