Shakira is on a private visit and returns to South Africa Monday. She has been brought to Zimbabwe by Malilangwe proprietors which runs an adventure company in Gonarezhou, a game park in the lowveld. Fans could almost see her for a few moments but she vanished in just a few minutes in a Merc. Shakira, who did the “Waka Waka” the official song for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, was dressed in a long flowing red outfit, and a Loius Vitton bag. She said: “Zimbabwe is endowed
with rich natural resources and amazingly important people.” Shakira said she knew about Zimbabwe through the World Cup. It was not immediately clear whether the pop star would get an opportunity to view one of the world’s seven wonders, Zimbabwe’s majestic Victoria Falls.
The “Whenever, Wherever” star said was on a “private visit” and there were no concerts lined up in Zimbabwe.
The 33-year-old Shakira is one of a string of international artists who performed at the FIFA Kickoff concert to mark the start of the tournament.
The Kickoff lineup, which included American artists Alicia Keys and Black Eyed Peas, was criticized in South Africa, where locals felt their own musicians had been sidelined.
