Rabat – After teasing fans with his single for over a week, Hatim Ammor finally released “Viva Morocco” earlier today.
Supporting the Atlas Lions in the summer 2018 World Cup, the Moroccan singer shared a colorful video clip featuring Moroccan celebrities singing his new song, such as Gad Elmaleh, Leila Hadioui, Hervé Renard, Mehdi Benatia, Hakim Ziyech, and other national team members.
The clip begins with children heading for the stadium holding a football and Moroccan flags on their shoulders. Then, Hatim Ammor appears, surrounded by several people watching the game that qualified the Lions Atlas for the World Cup.
“They play with their souls and their hearts, the Lion never loses a war”: the catchy song lyrics seem to reflect Moroccans spirit seven weeks before the beginning of the World Cup.
Before releasing his video clip, Ammor already received great feedback from the Moroccan team.
Mehdi Benatia posted a video of him and his teammates having great time while listening to a bit of the song last week. As for the French coach, Renard took to his Twitter account to thank the singer for his dedication. Posted an hour ago, the clip has already received more than 106,000 views.
In an interview with Radio Mars, Ammor revealed how he convinced the Atlas Lions to participate in his video clip.
“Nabil Dirar is a good friend of mine. Thanks to him, I realized my dream of collaborating with the Moroccan players. He’s the one who sent the track to his teammates,” Ammor confessed, adding that he was very surprised to see Renard singing his song, too.
