“South Africa Deserved to Win”- Nigerian Man Criticizes Super Eagles’ Qualification for AFCON Finals


With his tweet announcing Nigeria’s qualifying for the AFCON finals, a guy from Nigeria named Israel Oladipupo has pulled the tail on the lion.

In the wake of Nigeria’s AFCON semifinal victory over South Africa, he voiced his divisive viewpoint.

The individual on X going by the handle @LadiSpeaks maintained that Nigeria was not deserving of a spot in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) championship.

He wrote: “If we are being honest, South Africa deserves the win. They’ve played better.” He was subsequently bashed by angry Nigerians who couldn’t ascertain the reason behind his post at a time when the whole country was celebrating.

He wrote: “Why una Dey ratio me now? I’m a Nigerian nowwwwwwwww.” *
