Shakira delighted with ‘Waka Waka’ for Kai Havertz: The song that started her love affair with Pique

A striking video was shared by the Colombian singer and has given rise to all kinds of interpretations and memories.

Beyond the fact that the relationship between Shakira and Gerard Pique ended in the middle of the year 2022, everything that happens with the artist is something to talk about, much more if it is related to football. Now it happens due to a publication of Arsenal, with an original version to the rhythm of ‘Waka Waka’ and that is dedicated to Kai Havertz.

And it is no secret that the love story between Shakira and Pique started in 2010, before the World Cup in South Africa, in which the singer was the main figure for the aforementioned song and the former player was consecrated with Spain at the tournament. While filming the video for ‘Waka Waka’ (This Time for Africa) she felt the first butterflies in her stomach.

This was recorded in 2017 by the German weekly Bunte, when she spoke of the inspiration for ‘Me enamore’, which is dedicated especially to the Catalan:

“The song describes our first meeting to record the ‘Waka Waka’ clip for the 2010 World Cup and how I felt when I saw him in Los Angeles: like a lightning bolt! It was that moment that changed my whole life,” she said.

The relationship is over, the feelings have changed, the memories may be different, but she keeps aside what the song meant to her career and the influence it had in the context of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. That’s why, after a post on Arsenal’s social media, showing the chant of their fans after the 1-0 win away at Brentford, she decided to share it on her Instagram stories.

Where did Shakira get the ‘Waka Waka’ tune from?

This is the refrain that the Colombian singer says over and over again in ‘Waka Waka’: “Tsamina mina, eh, eh. Waka waka, eh, eh. Tsamina mina zangalewa, anawa-a-a” and at first it was said that a million-dollar lawsuit was coming from the Dominican singer Wilfrido Vargas. All because he uses the same words in a very famous song called ‘El negro no puede’, which was performed by Las Chicas del Can in 1987.

But after a while, the Dominican Republic musician himself explained in an interview with CNN that there was no lawsuit in progress for the alleged plagiarism. He even explained that he and ‘Shak’ took that fragment from the same source:

“I took that song (‘El negro no puede’) from the same source that Shakira took it from, I have nothing to do with that song. The first thing I want to know is to whom I gave statements of claim, with what right I can sue over something that is not mine. I feel ashamed and offended,” he said.

It turns out that the catchy and catchy fragment of ‘Waka Waka’ and Wilfrido Vargas’s song comes from the song ‘Zangalewa’, which was sung by members of the army, scout groups and all sorts of other groups who used to set the mood for marches in Africa many years ago.

The first to use the chorus were the Cameroonian Golden Sounds in 1986, then came Wilfrido Vargas to use it in the Latin American hit sung by Las Chicas del Can and in 2010 it arrived in the voice of Shakira to set the rhythm in the World Cup in South Africa with the unforgettable ‘Waka Waka’.

So, the rhythm sung by Arsenal fans for Havertz may be the original one that comes from Africa, but the fact that it was shared by the artist from Barranquilla brings to mind the relationship with Pique and the beginning of their love story, which ended 12 years later and is still a source of scandal and controversy.
