Blaqbonez who commented through Twitter, said he is not surprised that Nigeria lost the game because the team’s performance throughout AFCON had been unimpressive.

According to him, any true football fanatic would admit that the wins by Jose Peseiro’s side were ‘flukes’ that didn’t move him.

The rapper wrote; “Now that we’ve lost lets say the truth, we have been shit this whole tournament, anybody that knows football knows, all those fluke ass wins never moved me.”

“We have come this far, be rest assured that we will come back stronger in the next edition. There is cause for celebration. We are second best in Africa.

“You don’t have to be sad. We have every reason to celebrate. The nation is proud of you. You are the source of our unity. It is only when the Super Eagles are playing that we don’t talk about race or religion. You always unite the nation.”
