LOL! There seems to be a social media feud brewing between the women in South Africa (SA) and those in Cape Verde. This is despite the fact that the two African nations’ football clash is already behind us.

On Saturday, 4 February, the two countries’ national teams competed for a spot in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 semi-finals. After a full 90 minutes, extra time, and penalty shootouts, Bafana emerged victorious โ€“ thanks to Ronwen Williams’ four penalty saves and goals by Teboho Mokoena and Mothobi Mvala.

‘CAN WE BE APPRECIATED?’

Following the commotion on X, a video from a Cape Verdean woman has emerged. In it, she questions the animosity towards them from the women in SA.

“I don’t know why, but after the game all these South African girls are coming for the Cape Verdean girls. Why?” she asked.

“I don’t get why you guys are so mad that the South African men are appreciating the beauty of Cape Verdean women.

“They are not lying, we are beautiful. We are a mixture of everything and we are a race that is beautiful. Nobody said that you [SA women] are not beautiful, but can we have our time? Can we be appreciated? Like, we lost the game. So, can the Cape Verdean women be Appreciated?” she said.
