Prior to this presentation, 100 copies were presented to the Black Stars before they left Ghana to start camping for the World Cup.
Skipper Asamoah Gyan who received the CDs on behalf of the players said, “I am very grateful at this gesture, that our friends in music, who I am also part of, have made this great song for us. We will listen to it before every match.”
Stanbic Bank, as part of their support for Ghana’s world Cup Campaign, paid for the technical production of the song, which saw all artistes perform at no charge.
