since his debut in 2004. K'naan's hit single, Wavin' Flag, was used as one of theme songs for the 2010 Winter Olypics. Wavin' Flag was also re-done by a group of Canadian artists in an effort to raise money for Haiti after the devastating earthquake there in 2010. K'naan continues to be a musical icon for many young people all around the world. K'naan has done many musical colaborations with
artists such as Jason Mraz, Keane, and Wale. K'naan has many hit singles such as ABC's,
Wavin' Flag, Bang Bang, and Soobax.
