Inspire the nation with a song for Bafana

2010-03-06 00:00

DO YOU think you have what it takes to write a song that will inspire the nation and Bafana Bafana to glory in the 2010 Fifa World Cup?

The SABC, one of the tournament’s sponsors, is on the hunt for a song to rally each and every South African behind the national team.

Over the coming weeks radio listeners should listen out for a promo that will direct them to SMS the word Bafana to 34022. A return message will provide details of how they can enter the competition and the terms and conditions of entry. Details will be available on the SABC website.

Entries will be judged by a panel of music compilers and music managers from the SABC’s radio stations and television channels. They will choose five finalists whose songs will be played and rotated equally on all SABC radio stations and on suitable television programmes. Listeners and viewers can vote for their favourite song to become the official song for Bafana during the World Cup. Entries close on April 2.
