My name

My dear friends,
The word "jabulani" means "celebrate" or "rejoice" in Zulu.
Zulu is the language of the Zulu people, with about 10 million speakers, the vast majority (over 95%) of whom live in South Africa. Zulu is the most widely spoken home language in South Africa (24% of the population). It is also understood by more than half of the population. It became one of South Africa's 11 official languages in 1994.
I am glad I have this name - it shows the world really comes together when doing sports, as people celebrate football passionately all the time!
