Following the Super Eagles’ goalless loss against Croatia over the weekend, it’s starting to look like we might leave the World Cup without getting the chance to sing Naira Marley’s “Issa Goal” and actually mean it. Even Olamide and Phyno’s “Dem Go Hear Am” seems pretty insincere in hindsight.
This is exactly why Teni’s catchy new single, “Fake Jersey” is the World Cup song we actually deserve, as it focuses on the only good thing we have going for us in this competition at the moment: our stunning jersey.
On the track, she sings about buying a fake version of the beloved Super Eagles jersey, declaring that it’s nobody’s business. “I go to Nike website/They say the jersey don sell out/I call Emeka fo Yaba/He say the jersey na N2,500”, she narrates on the first verse.
However, the gifted ‘Rookie of the Year’ winner doesn’t spend the entire song trying to take the stigma out of buying fake jerseys, as she also uses a fair chunk of the song to celebrate a few old and new Super Eagles players — from Daniel Amokachi to Alex Iwobi.
