    FIFA President saddened by Siphiwo Ntshebe death

    Following the sad news of the sudden death of Siphiwo Ntshebe who was due to perform at the Opening Ceremony of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa on 11 June, FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter has today sent a message of condolence to the singer’s family, courtesy of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Organising Committee South Africa. Source: Fifa

    Siphiwo Ntshebe dies at just 34
    An opera singer chosen by Nelson Mandela to perform at the opening ceremony of the World Cup has died after a sudden illness. Siphiwo Ntshebe, 34, a tenor dubbed the “black Pavarotti”, died yesterday from meningitis. He had been admitted to hospital last week.

    Ntshebe went from humble beginnings, singing in a township church as a five-year-old, to studying at London’s Royal College of Music and performing throughout Europe. Source: Guardian

    This was a collaboration between the Vuvuzela Orchestra and the famous South African opera singer Siphiwo Ntshebe for the gala evening of the WEF held in Greenpoint in 2009. Shosholoza can be said to be South Africa’s Soccer Anthem. As is usual with African music the band members have to dance at the same time as playing a syncopated arrangement for seven notes. The song should be heard loud and clear during the 2010 Soccer World Cup.
