Football lovers rarely need any form of luring to go watch soccer at the stadium. Therefore, it would be interesting to observe if people will come out in their numbers after the roping of one of South Africa's biggest hip-hop stars, AKA.
AKA has been scheduled to perform at the 2019 Africa cup of Nations qualifier match between Bafana Bafana and Nigeria at FNB Stadium on Saturday, 17 November. The multiple award-winning musician will serve as the entertainment act before the game starts.
According to TimesLive, the decision for this move came from the South African Football Association (SAFA) and Stadium Management SA, to promote this upcoming match, which has garnered a disappointing turn out in ticket sales. Therefore, AKA's impact and popularity has been used as bait to woo the masses to purchase tickets.
Its the #SAvsNIG Qualifier this weekend! Myself & @Kiddominant will be performing "Fela In Versace" LIVE at FNB Stadium to take a stand against Xenophobia. Using #SmashTheLabel, tell us what you appreciate about South Africans / Nigerians for a chance to win double tickets to share the experience with us 🇿🇦🇳🇬
The Fela in Versace hitmaker's presence will hopefully bring out all the music and football lovers in their numbers, ensuring that both fractions are thoroughly entertained.
