  • Mohamed Ramadan produces “The Champion” soundtrack to inspire the teams from MENA participating in the Free Fire World Series in Singapore
  • Fans can cheer on the FFWS MENA teams on 28 May (Play-Ins) and 30 May (Finals)

Dubai:  Arab superstar Mohamed Ramadan has unveiled a music video and track to inspire Garena Free Fire gamers across the Middle East and North African (MENA) region.

The exclusive theme song is dedicated to inspiring the teams that are representing the MENA region for the upcoming Free Fire World Series (FFWS) 2021 in Singapore.

VIP Esports & DEA are the teams that have qualified for the World Series, which is set to take place in Singapore on 28 May (Play-Ins) and 30 May (Finals) after finishing champions and runner-up of the Garena Free Fire Arab League Season 3, respectively.

The song, titled “The Champion”, touches upon the need to work hard, embracing all the challenges and obstacles, and overcoming them to become a champion in Garena Free Fire, just like real life.

Ramadan, a popular actor and singer, who recently became the first playable Arab gaming character through his collaboration with Garena Free Fire said: “When people speak to me about the success I have achieved in life, I always tell them that it’s a result of all the hard work I have put into chasing my desire and ambition to be the best at whatever I do – be it acting, music or anything in life in general.” 

“Fame, success, and money have all been just a by-product of my hard work and that’s what I want to convey to all my fans through this song. Determination and perseverance are the key factors needed to be a champion in real life. Trust in God is success.”

Ramadan, who co-produced the song added: “I hope the song will inspire both MENA teams to do their best and be proud of their achievements, regardless of the result. I wish VIP Esports & DEA the best of luck – do MENA proud at the World Series!”

Composed by RedOne and Adil Khayat, the English chorus of the soundtrack is sung by Frankie J while the English lyrics were written by RedOne and Arabic lyrics written by Ahmed inzaghi. The song was mastered and mixed by Steph.

The release of “The Champion” comes a few months after Mohamed Ramadan’s nomination in the ‘Listeners Choice’ category of the 2021 MTV Africa Music Awards. Most recently, the Egyptian star also performed in the virtual Africa Day concert, produced by MTV Base Africa, having been featured as part of the ‘Artist Spotlight’.

Saadallah Djamal Eddine, captain of VIP Esports, who has wanted a direct seed into the Finals by winning the Garena Free Fire Arab League Season 3, said: “We are motivated after receiving such encouragement from Mohamed Ramadan, we can’t believe it. It is a few days to the biggest day of our esports lives and listening to The Champion song will be a huge inspiration for us. The song will definitely be on repeat over the next few days!”

The Play-Ins of the FFWS will be taking place this Friday (28 May), with the Finals happening on Sunday (30 May). Follow our social media pages for all the latest updates and catch all the action from the FFWS on our live streams on Facebook and YouTube.
