Video: ‘Waka Waka’, The Official 2010 World Cup Song, By Shakira

By Ollie Irish

Shakira: nice to look at (see gallery), not nice to listen to (watch video). All hail the mute button!

Picture 11 of 11

Cynical claptrap, especially the English lyrics.

    gotta be honest it’s really catchy

    Damn you Rich, that’s what I was afraid of. I suppose the African music bits are good. The Shakira bits, less so.

    guess all these critics were never good at football anyway, so honestly i don’t expect them to understand…do you?
