A new celebrity soccer season is just around the corner, and Mzansi can just forget celebrity boxing for a minute.
South African rapper Big Zulu made the announcement in a recent post on social media. So, now, fans should look forward to their celebrity faves (mostly musicians), showing off their skills on the soccer pitch as they play football.
The boxing match is especially significant, and it raises the prospects of music rivals ironing out their differences on the pitch in an atmosphere of amity and simple competition. Many South Africans still remember the last time the game was held.
It was a big surprise to see AKA and Cassper Nyovest in different teams, playing soccer. Even more surprising was the fact that AKA ended up pumping palms with Cassper in the middle of the game. It was one moment many would forever remember.
The reasons are many. For one, AKA and Cassper are not friends and every attempt to make them settle their differences had ended in futility. So it was a big moment to see the two seemingly bury their difference and just have a good time together on the pitch.
Now, a similar event is about to be re-enacted, with July 23 as the official date.
