Shakira, the Colombian-born international pop star, is due to sing her World Cup anthem 'Waka Waka' at the closing ceremony in Johannesburg's Soccer City stadium on Sunday, ahead of the 2010 final between Spain and the Netherlands.

Al Jazeera's David Foster spoke to the singer who told him that even a non-football connoisseur like her has been caught up in the fever of the games.
