Vuvuzela

I do not know much about South Africa, but I know a person who loves football and when I said I had to talk about 'Sudafrica', my friend told me about the vuvuzelas, so I decided to find out more about this topic.

The vuvuzela is a small trumpet that people in South Africa use to encourage their football team. The origin of the word is unknown, but is believed to be derived from the word 'vuvu' in Zulu which means 'make noise'.

Although, some organizations have tried to ban them because they are considered harmful to the ear as it produces a loud sound similar to an elephant's trunk but more intense.

Note that for the South African people it's ok if I use vuvuzelas in the stadium but some chains' television stations installed filters that remove the sound that they produce to improve transmission quality.

In this video you can hear the sound of the vuvuzelas:
