Nicki Minaj has no time for 2022 World Cup controversies… rapper Barbz has been enlisted for “Tukoh Taka” the official FIFA Fan Festival anthem!!!
The song is a collaboration between Nicki, Colombian singer Maluma and Lebanese singer Myriam Fares and delivers lyrics in 3 different languages - English, Spanish and Arabic to meet the needs of global football audiences.
“Tukoh Taka” translates to “click clack” in Yankee speech and all 3 megastars flaunt their presence in the video.
Edgar Esteves and Juan Felipe Zuleta direct the high-octane visual…which shuffles between cut scenes of football highlights, Nicki spinning around in a school bus and Maluma and Myriam Fares performing in a green-screen desert.

The World Cup action kicks off in Qatar on Sunday… but this year’s event has many pundits frowning as the festivities get underway.
Unlike Nicki, artists such as Doua Lipa and Shakirahave refused to participate in Cup performances… citing various alleged human rights abuses in the country.
FIFA also announced that it prohibit the sale of alcohol in World Cup stadiums before the opening matches… leaving many fans pissed off.
Nicki isn’t alone on the artist island of the World Cup, though… Sean-Paul,J BalvinBlack Eyed Peas and many more will also perform throughout the competition.
