The streets of Twitter went berserk Wednesday, after DJ Tira paid validation to a joke making the rounds across the social media platform about football superstar and Barcelona ace, Lionel Messi and Zodwa Wabantu.
Lionel Messi and his Barcelona teammates played against Mamelodi Sundowns for the Mandela Centenary Trophy on May 16, 2018 at FNB Soccer Stadium in Johannesburg.
While the whole of South Africa got right into the buzz and frenzy of the Argentinian as well as the travelling Barcelona contingent, a Tweet from a fake or parody Messi account called on Zodwa Wabantu, saying he was on his way to see her.
As fans continue to grapple in the joke, DJ Tira looked to have stoked the fun a bit as he added his take on the conversation with the hilarious revelation that Messi was indeed asking for Zodwa‘s digits.
