South African rapper, AKA, has reacted to the country’s 2-1 defeat to Nigeria at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt.
The 1996 champions were beaten by the Super Eagles on Wednesday to reach the semi-final.
To get to that stage, the Bafana Bafana caused an upset, eliminating host and favourite Egypt.
And AKA who was uncontrollable after the clash, called it the biggest rivalry on the continent and wondered why South Africa loses to Nigeria in everything.
According to him, Stuart Baxter’s men should have lost to the Pharoahs instead.
He tweeted; Apparently, the dollies are saying … but if Nigeria loses, who’s gonna buy the champagne?! I’m f*cking gutted. 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.
