Video: K’NAAN – T.I.A


K’NAAN was born in Mogadishu, Somalia and grew up during the Civil War. His aunt, Magool, was one of Somalia’s most famous singers. K’naan’s grandfather, Haji Mohamed, was a poet. If there was ever a male candidate for M.I.A-like stardom, it’s this guy. This song bolsters that sentiment by being called T.I.A. (This is Africa) and displaying the same global-centric sounds. Lovin’ this tune.
