We all hate dilemmas but here’s one that has me really in a tizz! The Waka Waka (or Wukka Wukka) or World in Union? Which one? I recall watching the last game and obviously final of the 1995 rugby cup 1995 between South Africa and the New Zealanders. Of course the New Zealanders had to put up with the food poisoning of the previous night which lead to them losing. Fortunately I was only privvy to these details a week later in the local gossip paper but let’s be honest and say that Joel Stransky was our saviour. And Madiba. And Francois Pienaar and all the other players. But let’s double up on the honesty factor, PJ Powers sang her heart out with the World in Union. She is a huge icon in South Africa. How does Shakira fit into the picture. Well firstly I was very pissed off that I did not record the celebration concert to the opening concert. Secondly when they had a rerun I was not aware of it, just flicking through the channels caught my eye. And Shakira always catches my eye. Shakira dancing catches both eyes. Shakira doing the belly dance caught both eyes plus a whole lot of other things. Before I digress, PJ Powers is also beautiful but doesn’t do the belly dance. Shakira and PJ Powers both have beautiful voices but they are as different as cordite is to gunpowder, but they can both light your fuse.
So which song is your favourite? Yes, so Waka made it world wide. Think about it, two different songs, 15 years apart. Shakira’s belly and PJ’s power.
