Olamide & Wale's Nigerian Soccer Anthem 'Make Us Proud'

Nigerian rapper Olamide and Wale collaborate on Nigerian soccer anthem 'Make Us Proud' just in time for FIFA 2014.


Nigeria's self-crowned Baddest Guy Ever Liveth Olamide teams up with D.C.'s Wale (whose parents are Yoruba) on his latest victory lap, the congratulatory "Make Us Proud." Fueled by triumphant horns and a singsong hook, the YBNL x MMG collaboration has the makings of a feel good anthem just in time for FIFA 2014. Speaking of which, producer Pheelz samples an old Peak Milk soccer commercial on the “papilo, I know say you go make us proud” chant. Stream and download Olamide and Wale's Nigerian soccer banger below.
