Vuvuzela single to tackle charts

The ubiquitous droning World Cup horn the vuvuzela is making a bid to score in the charts.
A team of record producers created Blow That Vuvuzela and landed a distribution deal in the space of five days when it looked like the relentless racket could see the instrument banned from grounds.
Now the group - calling itself The Voodoo Sellers - is poised to release the dance track on Thursday on iTunes.
It is claimed to be the UK's first commercial vuvuzela single and unites rhyming celebrity names such as Nelson Mandela, David Mellor, Paul Weller, Uri Geller and "busty Nigella".
"We'd heard that some of the big corporate sponsors wanted the vuvuzela out of the stadiums and felt something had to be done. And fast," said the group's frontman, who uses the pseudonym Viv Vuzela.
"The vuvuzela has united the world. It is the sound of the tournament. This is a call to everyone to blow that vuvuzela in defiance."
Vuzela added: "We wanted to include Fabio Capella in the lyrics but he didn't quite fit."
