Shauwn “MaMkhize” Mkhize and her son Andile Mpisane were super chuffed when their team Royal AM won a match against Maritzburg United on 3 October. As part of the celebrations, Andile decided to shower players with R200 notes and has since been heavily criticised by South Africans who say that the pair embarrassed the players.

MaMkhize and Andile celebrate a Royal AM win by showing off riches

MaMkhize and her team Royal AM have worked hard to gain recognition in the industry and it seems like their hard work is finally paying off. The team recently walked off the field victorious following a match against Maritzburg and MaMkhize could not hide how proud she was.

And seemingly, neither could her son Andile who is also a chairman for the team.

After the match, Andile thought it a good idea to walk onto the pitch where he showered the players with R200 notes – something neither the players nor South African football fans found entertaining.

In various clips shared online, players can be seen looking disgruntled as they watch MaMkhize and Andile throw the money around. In one specific clip, Tshidiso Monamodi, one of the team’s players can be heard saying:

“Coach, talk to them (MaMkhize and Son) not to bring it (money) here, and they mustn’t bring it here.”

Many people headed online after watching the stunt where they criticised MaMkhize and her son for embarrassing players with their stunt. A few people however thought their behaviour was justifiable.
