You Need to Hear This Nigerian Rap Anthem For the Winter Olympics

Behold your new Nigerian Winter Olympics anthem, courtesy of Tobe Nwigwe.

Houston-based artist Tobe Nwigwe is not messing around.

On top of helping design the opening ceremony attire for the Nigerian bobsled team in the ongoing Winter Olympicsβ€”which he created with his partner Fat Ngwigweβ€”Tobe's now dropped what should become the Nigerian squad's go-to pump-up track.

"History" is a heavy boost of bass and 808 drums highlighted by Tobe's rhymes shouting out Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga, the first African team to ever compete in bobsled at the Olympics, as well as Simidele Adeagbo, Nigeria's first female skeleton athlete.

"HISTORY. To anyone who was ever called a Bootyscratcher... this is for US," Tobe writes via Facebook.

Featuring bars like "Word to God or Chukwu. Hop up in that sled handsfree like a Bluetooth. Dip like Fufu. If you win we'll salute you by having the world wobble wobble, shake it shake it like a loose tooth," this track goes. so. hard.

Get sucked into Tobe Nwigwe's "History" below. Seun's already into it.
