Here’s the newly released ‘Over Di Bar’ gospel track – VIDEOS
A new gospel song by the comical title Over Di Bar, made famous by one Nigerian fan at the ongoing World Cup, has been released in Kenya
Comedian Dr Ofweneke features gospel singer Godson Jawabu in the hit titled Over Di Bar.
While the title of the song has been coined from the now famous chant by the Super Eagles fan during the group stage match against Iceland, the song is a proclamation of how the Devil’s evil plans are bound to fail.
The three minutes song borrows heavily from the football chant featuring a few stanzas of life situations where one needs all negatives neutralized including incidents of witchcraft and temptations.
The Nigerian fan who filmed the viral video started shouting Over di bar (Over the bar) when Nigeria conceded a plenty against Iceland with the Nigerians leading 2-0.
He kept chanting as Gylfi Sigurðsson lined up for his spot kick, and sure enough the ball went over the bar.
Nigeria won the match 2-0 after losing the first game to Croatia by a similar scoreline to revive their hopes of progressing into the Round of 16 stage.
The Super Eagles eventually crashed out of the tournament after going down 2-1 to Argentina in a must-win final group fixture, to the heartbreak of millions of their fans.
