Vuvuzelas are a bit of a con, they were invented about 3-4 years ago so that the pathetically small crowds in the South African Premier league could make some noise. Most of the population can't afford a ticket so apparently the stadia are usually only about one third full, without something to make a bit of noise the TV coverage sounded a bit grim.
Now with virtually all the major TV companies complaining about the noise (which is appalling and ruins the enjoyment of most people in the stadium and at home watching or listening)that awful man TuTu is wittering on about denying the African culture. The vuvuzela isn't a cultural artifact it is a marketing tool. IMHO they should be banned immediately before anyone brings them into the UK and ruins our league football.
