Is this a song about football or love and why can’t it be both? Like A Football is taken from the debut Ennanga Vision album – what starts off like a blissed-out tribute to Acclaim’s 8-bit classic video game “Wizards and Warriors” soon develops into a clever, infection, joyous pop song. Ennanga Vision is the result of London producer Jesse Hackett’s musical journey through Uganda – recording with chief collaborator, multi instrumentalist and singer Albert Ssempeke and featuring many legendary singers from the north of the country.
Twongweno, a northern king of Acholi wedding music circuit and big electronic pioneer within Uganda, co-wrote Like a Football – a homage to the football legends he perhaps aspires to write specially commissioned pop songs for 😎.
Can you imagine this song soundtracking the 2018 World Cup? I can! The album comes out on Soundway Records in June ’17.
