On asking about the possibilities of a future collaboration with Rahman, the Somali singer said, “I am eager to explore new things in life.”

The 32 year old composer hopes that his composition ‘Wavin’ Flag’ can capture the feeling of ‘unity and celebration’, which the FIFA epitomizes. K’Naan said, “The ‘Wavin’ Flag is the Coca-Cola anthem for the FIFA World Cup of 2010. It feels great to compose a hit track in all four corners of the world. It is a beautiful and inspiring song and I wish it brings a feeling of unity and celebration to people all over the planet.”

The Universal Music, which released the song, says that it has made a record with more than 150,000 downloads in India. This has become the caller tune of many football enthusiasts. Apart from clubs, the radio and TV channels are also playing it repeatedly.

K’Naan informed, “In more than 150 markets all over the world, the single has been released as the anthem for the global Coca-Cola campaign in support of its FIFA World Cup.”

In the Twitter, many Bollywood stars have posted their views on this song. On the song, Shah Rukh Khan tweeted, “My kids are in love with the Wavin’ Flag song.”

Bollywood singer Mohit Chauhan said, “The song comes with the right spirit and drives home the accurate message, whether be it life or soccer. I love the beats of the track and the tune is also very catchy.”

Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is also praising the song, saying, “The best part of the song is that I feel like humming it whenever it is played and that’s what makes it a great track.
