In the video, the fan – who is believed to be a die-hard Orlando Pirates fan – who goes by the name Msavenkosi Sohulu, sings “We are the World‘a classic song by various artists who called themselves USA for Africa.

The song was first released in 1985 and featured such world famous musicians as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie. It was aimed at raising funds to help sick African countries.

But Sohulu reworked the song’s lyrics and expressed his heartache at Chiefs being beaten since the start of the DStv Premier League season.

In five games so far, the Chiefs have lost three and won two. Naturena teams conceded seven goals and scored four.

Chiefs lost 1-0 to Royal AM in their first game. They beat Maritzburg United 3-0 in the second leg at home.

Amakhosi were then ignominiously thumped 4-0 by Mamelodi Sundowns away in Pretoria. They followed that up with a 1-0 win at Richards Bay in Durban last weekend.

Things went south again for Chiefs in Cape Town on Tuesday night where they lost 2-0 to Cape Town City.

In the song, Sohulu sings about the heartache and pain these defeats have brought to Chiefs fans across the country.

He sings in a mixture of Izulu and English: “Sishaywa njalo nje (we are always beaten). Uyashlewa u-Arthur Zwaneeee (Arthur Zwanee is not himself).

“Kungokwenz’into sithathe u-Eric Tinkler (it’s better to hire Eric Tinkler), maybe uzokwenz’into uzokwenz’into u-Eric Tinkler (he can do a better job).

“Uyashlewa u-Arthur Zwaneeeee. We are the hosi, we are the hosiii (We are the leaders). Sishaywa njalo zonkinsuku sinethemba (We keep getting beat down but everyday we wake up with hope).

“Liphelehi itemba lethu, akulungi lutho (Our hope is dwindling, nothing is going well). Siikhosi sishaywa zonkinsuku (As chiefs, we are beaten all the time).”
