How did the vuvuzela become so popular?

Exerpt from CNN:

However, their presence at football matches in South Africa dates back to the late 1980s according to Philani Mabaso, the communication officer for Durban-based Premier Soccer League side AmaZulu FC, formerly known as Zulu Royals.

Mabaso told CNN that his club may have been the first to have a vuvuzela on its terrace.

"The first match I saw one there was in 1987 when AmaZulu played Jomo Cosmos, there was a man with a big, metal vuvuzela," he said.

"Most of our supporters are members of the Shembe church, which is very prominent in our province. They would come from their congregation straight to the match. I think we were one of the first, if not the first, because of this."
