"Eight goals for Africa" song recorded by eight African artists from across the continent will be sung by them in a live performance at the Soccer City Fan Fest in Johannesburg on the day of World Cup finals.

The song is part of an awareness and advocacy campaign developed by the United Nations System in South Africa on the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which are an eight-point road map with targets and deadlines for improving the lives of the world's poorest people.

The music video of the song, produced by world-renowned music producer Arthur Baker, is screened throughout the World Cup, across all the Fan Parks and Public Viewing areas. It is also being disseminated free of charge locally and internationally before, during and after the 2010 World Cup.
