Man United welcome new superfan DJ Cuppy after Ighalo strike

Published

The Nigerian DJ had committed to joining the Red Devils’ fanbase if the Nigerian striker found the net against Norwich.

Manchester United have welcomed DJ Cuppy as their newest fan after the Nigerian musician vowed she would pledge allegiance to the Red Devils if Odion Ighalo scored against Norwich City in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Writing on Twitter ahead of the quarter-final clash, the 27-year-old suggested that he would be her national duty to throw her support behind United if Ighalo got among the goals.

“As a Nigeria, I think it’s only right that, if Odion Ighalo scores a goal today, I will officially join Man United as a fan,” she wrote on her @CuppyMusic Twitter handle.

Maintaining his excellent recent record in front of goal, the ex-Super Eagles frontman duly obliged, opening the scoring against the Canaries with a classic poacher’s effort.
While Norwich responded through Todd Cantwell to take the tie to extra time, Harry Maguire struck from close range at the death to take United into the semis.

It appears Manchester United were monitoring Cuppy’s decision, and after Ighalo’s goal went in, they duly welcomed her to the Red Devils fanbase.

It remains to be seen whether the Lagos-born DJ has already been brushing up on her United history, or invested in one of the club’s replica jerseys, but she did share some fan artwork on social media on Sunday which depicted her, alongside Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, signing on the dotted line at Old Trafford.

The radio host’s football allegiance has been the subject of some scrutiny over the years, with Cuppy revealing recently that her troubled relationship with Arsenal had come to an end.

The timing of her tweets this week suggested that the club’s decision to offer contracts to David Luiz, Cedric Soares and Pablo Mari was at the root of her change of heart.

“It’s not me, it’s you,” she wrote, in a tweet addressed to the Gunners, earlier in the month. “[There’s] only so much heartbreak a girl can take, Arsenal.

“I can no longer stay in this toxic relationship, I’m sorry.”

Lagos-born Cuppy moved to London in her early teens, getting a degree from King’s College London before moving to the United States for her master’s degree.

Earlier this year, the music producer became the first African DJ to host a radio show on Apple radio.

WATCH: Drew McIntyre stabbed Randy Orton with pen after WWE Raw went off the air

Published

Monday’s episode of WWE Raw marked the first episode following Sunday’s WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event.

In the headliner of this event, Randy Orton beat Drew McIntyre in a Hell in a Cell match to win the WWE Title. On Raw, McIntyre was in a bad mood as a result and was on a path of destruction.

The end of the show saw McIntyre and Orton brawl. We noted on the site that the show ended abruptly after Orton decided to fight with McIntyre instead of having a face-to-face with Bray Wyatt. The last thing that viewers in the United States saw was Orton and McIntyre brawling on the announce table.

The live feed continued in Canada, which saw McIntyre recover and get in control to the point where he grabbed a pen and “stabbed” Orton in the eye with it.

WWE later uploaded footage of the segment with this part included. It will be interesting to see if that footage stays up as the pen was something you had to be looking for.
