The World Cup goes forth


The concert last night was electrifying – standout performances from Angelique Kidjo, K’Naan, and even Shakira, but for me the best song was Vusi Mahlasela’s first song (which didn’t make the highlights cut. Watch it here.) But the man who stole the show was undoubtedly everyone’s favourite archbishop Desmond Tutu, with an eccentrically charming speech which got the crowd roaring and made the TV audience feel like they were there.

The opening ceremony this afternoon was world-class, yet still quirky – I loved the dung beetle tortuously pushing the ball across the field. Well done South Africa, you have made the whole continent proud.
