24 Nigerian Musicians Reimagined As International Football Clubs


May 3, 2016
In the spirit of football, Twitter user @Wac_clumsy re-imagined Nigerian musicians as international football clubs and the comparisons were too accurate.

Here are the 24 musicians he compared to International football clubs:

1. Davido- PSG

Because Davido got to the top because of money and has been consistent since then.

2. Tuface – Real Madrid

Tuface has been awesome ever since and still bossing the industry.

3. Skales – Arsenal FC

Because he’s so close to making it, yet always so far.

4. D’banj – Manchester United

D’banj like Man-U was always bossing it till he changed management, then he dropped a bit but he bounced back.

5. Burna boy – West Ham

He is very good but never really gets the recognition he deserves.

6. D’Prince – West Brom

Known but hugely irrelevant.

7. Pasuma – Juventus

He is bossing it in a league of his own (Fuji).

8. Seyi Shay – Aston Villa

Always making stupid (in her case grammatical) errors and embarrassing herself.

9. Patoranking – Athletico Madrid

Patoranking came from nothing to try and upset the big boys.

10. Olu maintain – QPR

Gets relegated, bounces back, gets relegated again.

11. Lynxx – Manchester City

Although Lynxx made it because of the money, he has been hugely inconsistent.

12. Darey – Barcelona

Very good, sings with this charisma that only he has. One of the best.

13. Viktoh – Sassuolo

That’s right, so irrelevant!

14. Adekunle Gold – Dortmund

Came from nowhere, is very good and is loved by all.

15. Sinzu – Valencia

Your time at the top is over. Just stop making music.

16. Ice Prince – Chelsea

Made it, then started singing/playing rubbish.

17. Vector – Liverpool

Inconsistent and underrated.

18. Olamide – Tottenham

Using young boys to make it. Respect!

19. Ycee – Leicester City

Came from nothing and hugely making it.

20. B-red – Monaco

Very useless, upon all the money.

21. 9ice – AC Milan

His era of dominance is over.

22. Reekado Banks – Watford

He’s making a promising start so far.

23. Sina Rambo – Portsmouth

That one still dey sing sef?

24. Phyno – Napoli

Nobody understands him but he’s making it. Check out @Wac_Clumsy‘s Twitter account for more.
