 By Hakeem Babalola

A group of African cultural promoters entertained Hungarian audience at the Europark Segafredo Kávéház in Budapest on June 20 to mark the ongoing football festival known as the World Cup in South Africa. 

The event which was organized by the Mahatma Gandhi Human Rights Movement is part of several activities in commemoration of 2010 World Cup taking place for the first time in Africa since the first tournament in Uruguay in 1930.  

The group which comprises of Dava Gin, Festus Ihaza, Okoh Peter, Frank, Tony Papa and Juanita the only female, rendered some African tunes mixed with English to draw the audience who was obviously captivated by Juanita's body movement - along. 

The cultural event lasted twenty minutes after which the audience glued to the large screen to watch Brazil/Ivory Coast group G match in which Brazil won by three goals to one.
