Popular South African rapper, Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, alias AKA, has reacted to Nigeria’s 2-1 victory over Bafana Bafana at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, quarter-final match played on Wednesday. Goals from Samuel Chukwueze and Williams Troost-Ekong ensured that Gernot Rohr’s men dumped South Africa out of the competition.
AKA, who was angry over the outcome, took to his Twitter account to express sadness over South Africa’s defeat to the three-time African champion, asking why his country always have to lose against Nigeria at everything. He stated that he would have preferred the Bafana Bafana losing their previous matches to avoid facing Nigeria.
The rapper wrote: “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 is 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.”
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.
