We are still basking in the euphoria of the Super Eagles thrashing South Africa’s Bafana Bafana 2-1 in the 2019 African Cup of Nations, a quarter-final clash that saw the South Africa get eliminated from the tournament. Rapper AKA, who incidentally is from South Africa, really didn’t hide his disappointment about the match. I have read all his tweets and it felt as though he was throwing a tantrum.
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.

And Nigerians have jumped on the opportunity to troll the rapper and rub the victory in:
Well just 1-2 to tell you, it’s a game of football and it’s just Nigeria’s day… Drink water and you will be fine.

You keep winning Naija on xenophobic attacks.
At least be proud of that
