Tracing the Vuvuzela History
The vuvuzela is 65cm plastic blowing horn immortalised by the 2010 football World Cup. Owing to its simplicity the origins of the instrument is hard to trace. Similar blowing horns are found in Latin America, while those trying to trace it's origin via the Zulu name vuvuzela come up against synonyms notably lepatata.
The Lion Sleeps Tonight is a song recorded by The Tokens and originally written as Mbube by Solomon Linda. The song is also recorded by many artists as Wimoweh.
In the jungle, South African jungle
God, and the devil were each having a holiday in hyper-space. The topic of conversation turned to who could turn out the best football team. Much to the God's surprise the devil proposed a football match to settle their dispute.
As God was leaving he said to the devil, 'Don't you realise that all the 'good' players go to heaven?"
The devil, smiling, responded "Yeah, but we've got all the refs!" See funny soccer referee jokes.
My favourite football tale was not of the World Cup itself, but of a Soweto team who drove out of town, walked backwards and barefoot off the team bus into the the bush until they found a termite mound, urinated on it, then walked backwards to the bus again - and still didn't win the league.
The word "Zakumi" derives from "Za", which is South Africa's abbreviation and "Kumi", which is a representation of ten in a majority of the African languages, denoting 2010.
