Nollywood actor turned clergyman, Jimmy Odukoya, has stirred up a reaction online by playfully teasing South Africans with their popular song by Tyla, “Water”.

It’s common knowledge that the Super Eagles defeated South Africa in the semi-finals.

Despite the game ending in a 1-1 draw after 120 minutes, the Super Eagles clinched victory in a tightly contested match with a 4-2 win on penalties.

In a gesture of consolation towards South Africans, Jimmy created a rendition of Tyla’s “Water” dedicated to them.

He acknowledged their commendable performance but emphasized the necessity for Nigeria to emerge victorious.

He remarked that if there’s any solace for their defeat, it might be found in “Grammy Water.”

Nevertheless, he assured them of his prayers.

Addressing Nigerians, Jimmy conveyed appreciation for the efforts of the South African team, yet emphasized Nigeria’s determination to secure the cup.

He posted, “My fellow Nigerians, listen first of all South Africans, well done, the boys played a good game but at this point, it’s time for the boys to go to sleep. It’s your bedtime but as you go to sleep, this song comes to mind, ‘You have played, You have missed now, you have lost your breath, you need water’. But if there is any consolation it is Grammy water.

But you know what we would be praying for you, as you go for the third place.

But you know what my Nigerians, God no go shame us. We are taking the Cup. We are bringing it home. We are the Super Eagles, we keep flying”.

Many celebrities, including Deyemi Okanlawon, Juliana Olayode, Omowunmi Dada, Uche Jombo, and more, engaged in the conversation in his comment section.

Deyemi Okanlawon humorously commented, “Baba remixed a South African song! Just because they beat us at the Grammys, we’ll beat them at AFCON.”

Former beauty queen Anna Ebiere joined in, playfully urging for louder cheers: “They didn’t hear well! Scream louder!”

Omowunmi Dada expressed confidence, “God will not let us down because we won’t settle for anything less.”

Allwell Ademola appreciated the song, commenting, “It’s all about the song for me.”

Furthermore, she added, “Grammy water,” indicating amusement at the reference.
