Shakira’s World Cup anthem doesn’t impress some

Pop star Shakira’s official World Cup anthem “Waka Waka” has received an unofficial “No, no” from South Africans.

The song, which is a collaboration with South African band Freshlyground, was released to radio stations last week but has not hit the right note with football fans in the host country.

“Waka Waka—Time for Africa” takes its inspiration from Cameroonian music, but South Africans aren’t convinced Colombian singer Shakira is the right person to represent Africa’s first World Cup.
