Mzansi was left thoroughly thrilled after Maskandi FC and Hip-Hop FC took to the soccer field to prove who are the champions in the music scene.

Organised by rapper Big Zulu, some of the biggest names in music joined in on the fun and games in a soccer match that many people didn't believe would be this entertaining.

Earlier this week, the line-up for the match was announced on social media by the Imali Eningi musician

“Today is the day, Hip Hop 5-0 Maskandi,” speculated Big Zulu.

“Wena sithin esakho score? The game will be streamed live on Facebook and YouTube. No-one is allowed at the stadium.”

On team hip-hop or “Hip-Hop FC”: Sjava, Kwesta, AKA, Sho Madjozi, Donald, Riky Rick, Zakes Bantwini, Reason, and newcomer Blackie were some of the names repping for the rap scene.

For Maskandi: P. Manenzhe, Ntencane, Inkosi Yamagcokama, Njoko, Dumakahle, Ngiga, Tshatha, Mzukulu, Umapensela, Ngalo V, and Jaiva Zimnike.

Hip-Hop took the bragging rights after Donald scored in a penalty shoot-out, leaving the score at a close 4-3. 

Sjava, Sho Madjozi and AKA were some of the stars who gave us the most memorable moments on the field.
