FIFA President Sepp Blatter has defended South African fans’ right to blow their vuvuzela horns at World Cup matches despite global criticism from television viewers of the constant blaring noise.

The head of soccer’s governing body says Africa has “a different rhythm, a different sound,” and the fans’ tradition shouldn’t be stopped.

World Cup organizing committee spokesman Rich Mkhondo said South Africa’s guests should embrace its culture and how its people celebrate.

I’ve watched a couple matches, and while the horns are prevleant, I haven’t been annoyed by them and I don’t think they’ve been that loud.
