The Hour K'naan

The Hour K'naan

K'naan sits down with George Stroumboulopoulos to discuss the astronomical success of his song Wavin' Flag, which became the anthem for Canada's Haiti relief efforts and for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. K'naan also talks about growing up in Rexdale, a Toronto neighbourhood with a reputation for gang activity that has become home to many Somali immigrants.
