I remember when I heard the song.
I remember people were happy and excited.
I remember we were screaming and blowing our vuvuzelas.
I remember when the FIFA World Cup was played in South Africa.
The joy that we had was irreplaceable.
I remember the joy and the smiles that were on our faces when we sang the song
“Waka-waka ma e-e”
Truly speaking the song was the best song ever.
