South Africa Waka Waka!

This time for Africa!!!

If you haven't somehow caught the south africa soccer fever...awwww come on, under what rock doth thou reside!!!!I'm not much of a soccer enthusiast,and even i can do the DISKI DANCE!!!Lol!!!


There seems,admittedly to be this underlying "bad belly" amongst us Naija-rians,that oh well, FIFA didn't give us the ticket to host,so lets just enjoy the soccer. But i think,if we are to be honest, we couldn't do quite half a job as they've done with the PR for the event. See how that "Waving Flag" Song has caught like a virus!!!How many versions have you heard??!!!And i just saw Shakira and Fresh Ground's "Waka Waka". I think it was awesome-gets you definetly in the mood!Well,i'm a biased Fresh Ground fan though!


I've been to a number of African countries, and ehmmm,i just think south africa beats em all!What other country would do a CNN feature on "Juju People" making charms for footballers and you'd think "awwww that's so cute"!!!lol!They've got great people, beautiful girls (ehmm,cough!),and such an amazing culture. From a theater perspective, i've been long biased towards their cultural depictions on stage, even over ours. I think its the way they manage to properly "brand" everything!



Ehmm,cough again. I'm off work today, being the opening day of the ceremony!WAIIIIIT oooo,i truly am sick!Was at the hospital yesterday and i'm right now drugged out with camoquine. So i've called in sick, and right now, quite comfy with toast bread,honey and cable t.v!Life is good!!!Ohhh shit,Boss, you're not reading my blog are you?!Never mind, Boss is also off work today!I suspect him too.Seriously tho, i av worked overtime in the past months,hence i need a break jare!

In conclusion,
I THINK SA rocks.
I THINK whatever company handled the PR package for this event should be working for mE.
I KNOW that once the first game is played, T.notes will completely forget he EVER wrote this blog.

But,take a mo peoples-pimples and lets hear it for SOUTH AFRICA!!!




Signing Off,
A Proudly South African T.Notes!
