Bafana Bafana, Beyoncé is with you

Fikila Mbalula just loves commenting on Bafana Bafana’s performances with reference to Beyoncé. AAISHA DADI PATEL decided to get in on the action.

Minister of Sport and Recreation Fikile Mbalula’s obsession with singer Beyoncé is well documented. Local musician and writer Ntsiki Mazwai, even penned the minister an open letter calling him a groupie in late December.

But that hasn’t stopped his adoration of the singer.

Defending Bafana Bafana’s loss against Algeria on Monday, Mbaks used a Beyoncé reference (at 1:19), saying Bafana Bafana were just struck by the heat of the moment and were subsequently “Drunk In Love”.

In anticipation of Bafana’s match against Senegal this evening, we at The Daily Vox are inspired by Mbalula, and now have a few of our own Beyoncé references to throw in to show our support for the boys.

FIERCE. We’re always fierce. We’re ready for this…


Ready to kick the ball, and to kick some ass.


Bey is clearly on our side. She’s even kitted out in our national colours.


So does Senegal even stand a chance?


You’ve got this, Bafana Bafana. Good luck and #GoBafana!
