Football is one thing that unites people across the globe, same as music. So it comes as no surprise that these two great tools for unity also go hand in hand to please fans.
It has been gathered that songs by some Nigerian music stars have been enlisted as soundtracks for FIFA 21, a popular football video game.
A division of Electronic Arts (EA) recently released a list of music artistes selected for the FIFA 21 project and it included established musicians as well as talented newbies in the industry.
Nigerian star, Fireboy’s club banger, Scatter, was announced as one of the official tracks for the video game. The deal was reportedly negotiated by Empire publishing and YBNL.
Scatter is a track off Fireboy DML’s Laughter, Tears, and Goosebumps album.
The fast-rising singer took to his Twitter page to share the good news. He posted a tweet showing that his song was part of the official soundtracks for FIFA 21.
