gvA Update

A goal by Andres Iniesta, about 4 minutes from the end of extra time gave the World Cup title to Spain over the Netherlands in soccer city Johannesburg, South Africa in 2010. The World Cup in South Africa brought Africa like had never been seen in a long time. The great Columbian singer songwriter performed the song Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", featuring the South African band Freshlyground. As it is widely known, the song was adapted from the Cameroonian band Golden Sounds's 1986 song "Zangaléwa." The lyrics of the song encourage us to aim for our goals like a soldier on the battlefield. And Africa was said to be rising as real GDP growth over 10 years had reached an average of near 6 percent in 2010 when the World Cup started, from well under 3 percent in the decade ending in the year 2000. The World Cup of 2010 in South Africa confirmed to the world that Africa was ready for fun. South Africa has capitalized on the event perhaps more than other African companies, as it has appeared easier for foreign companies to first have partnerships in South Africa before looking to other African countries. South Africa is showing the world that they are a destination for fun and happiness. Individuals also do this. When you look like fun, people come to you. People generally want to go a place where they will have fun. Fun attracts people. It also attracts their money. Many countries have recognized this. So Nigeria and other African countries will do well to show that they too can have a lot of fun, as I believe it is still time for Africa. Our hidden economics for you.
