Ras Dumisani was asked to sing our national anthem for the opening of the epic battle between the Springboks and France. Might I say that he opened with quite a bang or should I say a bong! What was that man smoking?
He sang off-key and was not in tune to the music, and at times it sounded like shouting rather than singing. The Springboks struggled to sing along with the well-known reggae singer, who, according to his MySpace profile, grew up in Durban in KwaZulu-Natal and now lives in France. Shame, Skalkie looked like he was ready to ‘moer’ him.
Oregan Hoskins, president of the South African rugby union, has sent a letter of complaint to the French rugby union regarding the version of the South African anthem performed on Friday evening. So far there has been no formal apology from the French quarter.
Oh ja Mr Hoskins, while you’re at it, maybe send a similar letter of complaint about the shoddy refereeing as well. The badly sung national anthem seemed to set the tone for the rest of the evening………… shocking.
Have a look at the video and let us know what you think.
