Diski, so many people use your name in vain, those who have faith in you sometimes go astray.
That’s a little adaptation of Musiq Soulchild’s song Love, from his smash hit debut album Aijuswanaseing.
That’s the song buzzing in my head as I think about how we’ve made a big mess of the local game.
Even now, there are some trying to patch it up because ke, the show goes on.
And then there are the ones who are just about eating now and being weird about benefits and owing each other.
Sounds like I’m talking about the sheriffs and bandits of the old Wild West. We have a different dynamic in our country to the Wild West
My favourite Afrikaans telenovela is in the background and it’s not just any old National Cup, it’s amateur versus professional.
There is so much in the journey of the Nedbank Cup.
So when the last-16 dates were confirmed, I started to picture my homie Rowan Hendricks with his mentor Johnny Ferreira at Polokwane City.
Man, how I wish I’d have time to connect with the legend Boebie Solomons and Cole Alexander.

Not everything is about the big cities, bafethu.
Look, that’s not to overlook some of the surprising decisions by the Limpopo club and their neighbours.
So here they are, they are about to visit defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns.
The stage is set for the weekend of February 26 to 28, when the Round of 16 kicks off.
Who’s the pressure on?

The Brazilians don’t play wena yoh, if uyadelela they’ll show you things.
So, how will Rise and Shine handle this type of team, at the back of Richards Bay knocking out Kaizer Chiefs?
Sundowns will be coming back from a Caf Champions League group stage engagement.
So they’ve got some other serious business to worry about.
Of course, the Nedbank Cup fits into that conversation too, as the qualifying ticket for Caf’s other premier club tournament, the Confederation Cup.
Then-second division side TS Galaxy did the whole thing, so it can be done, it can happen, but will it happen?
What will happen, if that this and that happens?
