Shakira :“I’ve become a football fanatic.”



Colombian superstar Shakira said on Saturday that keeping track of the World Cup in South Africa has made her “a football fanatic.”

“I really never in my life imagined that I would go straight to the sports section in the newspaper,” she told journalists ahead of Sunday’s final.

“I’ve become a football fanatic.”




Shakira, who wrote the official World Cup song “Waka Waka”, will play at the closing ceremony ahead of the final between the Netherlands and Spain.

She also played at a kick-off concert the night before the opening match.

“This has been one of the happiest months of my life, and one of the most exciting ones,” she said of following the World Cup.

The closing ceremony, which begins at 1630 GMT Sunday, will also include performances by South African groups Freshlyground and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, organisers said.





Shakira - Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) Lyrics

You’re a good soldier
Choosing your battles
Pick yourself up
And dust yourself off
Get back in the saddle
You’re on the front line
Everyone’s watching
You know it’s serious
We’re getting closer
This isn’t over

The pressure’s on; you feel it
But you got it all; believe it
When you fall, get up, oh oh
And if you fall, get up, eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Cause this is Africa
Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa

Listen to your god; this is our motto
Your time to shine
Don’t wait in line
Y vamos por todo
People are raising their expectations
Go on and feel it
This is your moment
No hesitation

Today’s your day
I feel it
You paved the way,
Believe it
If you get down
Get up oh, oh
When you get down,
Get up eh, eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa
Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa aa
Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa
