King Kaka Visits Arsenal Stadium As Man United Fan

Rapper Kennedy Ombima, alias King Kaka paid a visit to the Emirates Stadium in London, United Kingdom (UK) on Wednesday, December 15 to watch English Premier League side Arsenal beat West Ham United 2-0.

Despite the fact that he is a supporter of long-standing rivals Manchester United, King Kaka, in videos shared to his social media platforms, was marvelled by the sheer size of the stadium which hosts up to 60,000 fans, the same capacity as the Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi.

The stadium ranks third in the Premier League in terms of capacity, 704 fans more than West Ham’s London Stadium and outranked by Old Trafford (74,140) and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (62,303).

The musician toured the Super Box, which offers up to three and a half times more space than an Executive Box, providing a luxury environment to entertain up to 24 guests and the greatest flexibility to make the most of their matchday experiences.

“This is a dream come true for so many people. We have a very big announcement this January,” he stated while firing banter at his wife Nana Owiti who is an ardent Arsenal fan that her team would lose a crucial game in their top-four hopes.

He then shared another video of himself seated at the VIP section with a packed stadium while the Gunners were in action against the Hammers, who before the contest had beaten nearly all the league title contenders this season.

However, his hopes were dashed as the Gunners netted the two winning goals that sent them into the top four, above their opponents and above Manchester United, whose game against Brentford on Tuesday, December 14 was postponed due to COVID-19 related issues at the Manchester club.

Goals from Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe wrapped up an impressive win against West Ham United after manager Mikel Arteta named an unchanged side from their win against Southampton over the weekend. Martinelli scored the opener early on in the second half before Smith Rowe, who came on as a substitute, completed victory for the team in the 87th minute.

The only major blight for the Gunners was when captain Alexandre Lacazette’s penalty was saved by goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

For West Ham, they went down the losers with a man down after Vladimir Coufal was sent off for a second booking when he fouled Lacazette in the penalty box. Coufal was booked in the first half when his flailing arm caught defender Kieran Tierney in the face, leading to a protest amongst the Arsenal players.

Arsenal travel to Leeds United in their next game on Saturday, December 18, seeking redemption after they were hammered 7-0 by league leaders Manchester City on Tuesday.
