Folarin Falana, the Nigerian rapper and actor better known as Falz, has featured in a novelty match organised by Chivas Regal, the blended Scotch whisky brand.
The brand, which is one of Manchester United’s sponsors, had in December launched Regal football club (FC) to further promote itself globally.
“Chivas Regal, one of our proud sponsors, officially launched Regal FC at Hotel Football recently, in what was a truly unique event that celebrated the culture of modern football and how it can inspire those from all corners of the globe,” the club announced in a statement.
“Regal FC is a hub of innovation that aims to connect fans from all walks of life through bespoke content, exclusive merchandise and unique events that create long-lasting memories. The Regal FC Rooftop 5s tournament saw a number of teams battle it out for glory and celebrate what it means to be a football fan.”
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Falz shared a video clip from the match which took place at Old Trafford in England.
During the match, the ‘Bop Daddy’ crooner scored a goal. In the short clip, the rapper pounced on a defense-splitting pass from his teammate to score the beautiful goal.
He thereafter celebrated the goal with Cristiano Ronaldo’s iconic ‘siuu’ amid cheers from his teammate.
“Nominate this guy for Ballon D’or already abeg!!! Guess who scored a goal at Old Trafford today,” he wrote in a post accompanying the video.
In an earlier post, Falz described the opportunity as a “once in a lifetime moment.”
“This is that once in a lifetime kinda moment! Got to play at Old Trafford VS an all star UK team earlier today. I be Arsenal fan but this is still a dreaaaam,” he wrote.
