I’m  a avid fan of  music in general  and was pretty pleased to find some of my favorite oldies like “OSIBISA” ( Sunshine Day – OSIBISA) and “Khaled” performing  at the FIFA Soccer world cup  opening ceremony  as well  as one of my favorites R KELLY. Singer and rapper R. Kelly, who enjoys legend status here in South Africa, was joined on stage by the Soweto Spiritual Singers.And just in case you were searching for the results of the first match between south Africa and MEXICO , it was a DRAW


It was a power packed mix of vibrant and infectious music that was played in the opening ceremony FIFA WORLD SOCCER CUP as well as the pre-opening ceremony where “Black Eyed peas” did their thing. The stadium’s design was beautifully replicated in the centre of the pitch with a vast earth-coloured mat accommodating the hour-long display.
