Vegedream’s “Ramenez La Coup A La Maison” inspires an African World Cup celebration

Another look at Les Bleus' rousing team spirit

The UEFA Nations League competition that took place last weekend saw the French team play against Netherland in a match they won 2-1. But given that this was their first match on home soil since their triumphant World Cup campaign in Russia, the celebration after the match took an overly festive tone. The French national stadium was turned into a concert venue for over 80,000 supporters to party with the ever thrilling Les Bleus squad.

After the initial parade (at the famous Champs-Elysées in Paris) failed to satisfy the estimated 300,000 fans who had gathered in the streets, the post-match celebration on Sunday gave the fans a show befitting of their victory. Les Bleus’ most celebrated trait since they won the competition in July has been their rousing team spirit. And they displayed that again as the squad brought out Hip-hop artist, Vegedream, to perform his hit song, “Ramenez la Coupe à la Maison (Bring the Cup Home)”

His performance marked the highlight of the night with the Afropop melodies prompting dance moves from the players. As could be expected, the popular ‘Shaku Shaku’ featured on the world stage and emphasized both the team’s diversity and proficiency of music to bring cultures together.
