The football match that happened on Wednesday night between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Bafana Bafana of South Africa at the ongoing Africa Cup Of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt, has been a topic of discussion on various social media platforms.
Joining the discussion was the very Popular South African rapper AKA who went on his Twitter pages to share his view on the event.
The Fela in Versace rapper made it clear that he was tired of his country people always loosing to Nigerians in everything, he explained that he was hurt by it and would have preferred if his country mate lost to Egypt.
His tweets read:
I’m hurt man. This match was bigger than football. The biggest rivalry on the continent. Why do we always have to lose against Naija at EVERYTHING.
It’s a hard pill to swallow man. We keep on losing to Nigeria in every way
We should have just lost to Egypt rather than Nigeria.
Some of his followers adviced that his tweet might lead to xenophobic attacks on Nigerians living in South Africa.
While other disagreed with his statement by saying that South Africa is indeed winning Nigeria in aspects like Infrastructure, Government policies, and electricity.
His outburst comes as no surprise seeing that he lost the Black Entertainment Television (BET) awards for the Best Africa Act category that was done in June this year, to the Nigerian musician Burna Boy. We can say that we understand why he felt that way but then again football is a game of luck.
