Furthermore, the "3D world" pavilion will offer an array of additional live entertainment shown in 3D, including performances by musicians featured on the "Hello Afrika" album, a compilation showcasing top African musical talent (produced by Sony Music Entertainment "SME"). Entertainment attractions will also include the world premiere of the 3D music video of "Waka Waka", the official 2010 FIFA World Cup song performed by leading SME artist Shakira in collaboration with South African group Freshlyground.
