World Cup leopard mascot unveiled

The official mascot of the 2010 World Cup was unveiled on Monday in Johannesburg - a green-haired leopard named Zakumi - FIFA announced at a television gala broadcast nationwide.

Zakumi - the ZA stands for South Africa while kumi means ten in assorted African languages - has been exclusively designed in the host country which will stage the continent's first ever World Cup in 21 month's time.

Or yuh shoes burst off,
You could still jump up when music play.
Old lady, young baby, everybody could dingolay...
Dingolay, ay, ay, ay ay,

RIP Shadow....The legend will live on in music...
