Unknown to many Kenyans, a swahili song is the theme song to one of the most loved video games in the world.

On Facebook, you may have encountered a video of some white guys singing the ‘Lord’s Prayer’ in Swahili.

That song is called ‘Baba Yetu’, composed by Christopher Tin as the theme song for 2005 mega hit strategy game Civilization IV. 

The song became so loved and even went on to win a Grammy in 2011. To this day, it is the only video game theme song to have won a Grammy.

There have been numerous covers and performances of the same including by the US Marines. Most of the videos have millions of views on YouTube.
