“Tigini”: The Ivorian Song That Should Be Part Of The World Cup 2022’s Soundtrack
Whether it’s on Instagram Reels or on Football YouTube, “Tigini” has become a recognizable earworm that catches the listener’s attention every damn time.
The track is an official single from a ‘popular’ Ivorian artist known as Kikimoteleba. It is a viral tune, especially among sports lovers, as the rising popularity of the song has made it a choice soundtrack for football clips and all that sort of thing.
An afro song with a dancehall beat, “Tigini” is as African as a song could possibly manage to be. This is even though it was delivered in French, which happens to be Ivory Coast’s official language.
Kikimoteleba sings a catchy hook, a kind of onomatopoeia for rigorous dancing, a repetition of the word “tigini” with irresistible melodies. While short, the song manages to cover quite a lot. A fact you can deduce easily from the song is that Kikimoteleba is undoubtedly a talented rapper and singer.
The song has quite some interesting parts. Like the part where he just goes gibberish, singing “gbrakata gbrakata kprokotokotoko.” It was beautiful and interesting.
He also shouts out some African football stars in the song. In the second verse, he sings: “I want millions of euros, I want that Vacation in Monaco, Didier Drogba where are you? Samuel Eto’o, bring us back from the world to come and dance.”
