2010 FIFA World Cup, does not exclude the Record Library. Our local artists are already targeting all sectors of the market and are gearing up to make the event even more enjoyable. Some artists started to sing about the 2010 soccer spectacular as early as 2004. They would like to get us all involved - it is for South Africans, it is for Africa!
The personal favourites at present in the Record Library are as follows - Solly Moholo’s song 2010 SA We are the hosts from the cd Mandela O Llela Bana has the potential to become a great hit. So has the song 2010 by Mzwakhe Mbuli (The People’s Poet) from his cd Tribute to Mandela. Even the stalwart Afrikaans singer Laurika Rauch has recorded the song Skouspel 2010 for her cd called Tweeduisend-en-Tien!
These are just a few examples of the 121 songs which the Record Library has received up to now, and with all the hype surrounding the World Cup, one cannot help but become more involved in this great show coming our way!
