Guardian: World Cup organizer considers vuvuzela ban after tv complaints
Fifa has previously shrugged off complaints from broadcasters, players  and coaches about the noise from the plastic horns that are being sold  on every street corner in South African host cities; it said that the horns formed part of the unique African atmosphere  of the tournament and refused to ban them. But organizing committee chief executive Danny Jordaan, who battled for 16 years to bring the World Cup to South Africa, said he would prefer  the 10 stadiums hosting the World Cup to ring to the sound of singing  and dancing than the drone of the vuvuzela.
"I would prefer  singing. It’s always been a great generator of a wonderful atmosphere in  stadiums and I would try to encourage them to sing," he said.
"In  the days of the struggle (against apartheid) we were singing, all  through our history it’s our ability to sing that inspired and drove the  emotions."
