In Nigerian social parlance, it’s called “cruise” and that’s what Borussia Dortmund Twitter handle was all about on Friday evening as various posts celebrated Nigerian music star and former Super Eagles players.
David Adeleke (Davido) is a Nigerian music star, and one of the biggest in Africa. On Friday, the Borussia Dortmund handle tweeted to celebrate the music superstar, before posting pictures of former Super Eagles stars, Sunday Oliseh, and Victor Ikpeba, both former Borussia Dortmund players.
In another photo, the Borussia Dortmund handle posted photos of players of the club celebrating a goal and choking the goalscorer, in a manner typical of joyous players. The photos were tagged “E choke”.
This was after the handler posted “BVB fall on you” to celebrate one of Davido’s global hit singles “Fall”.
Oliseh played for Dortmund between 2000 and 2004, while Ikpeba played for the Black and Yellow between 1999 and 2002.
