Senegal Has the Best Fans at the World Cup

All the best reactions from Senegal's win against Poland, making them the first African team to win in the 2018 World Cup.

Senegal just pulled off a 2-1 win versus Poland that has turned the World Cup's Group H upside down, following Japan's upset win against Colombia.

Despite being, arguably, the best African team at the 2018 World Cup—led by star players like Sadio Mané, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Cheikhou Kouyaté—they were widely considered to be underdogs against Robert Lewandowski's Poland.

Well, like many of us thought, this Senegal team is a force to be reckoned with and they got the win against the odds.

If you watched the game, it was impossible to miss the deafening noise coming from the West African team's supporters, who lit up the Russian stadium with their chants throughout the game.

It was also impossible to miss Senegal's coach Aliou Cisse, definitely the coolest manager at the World Cup.

A particular group of fans, painted S-E-N-E-G-A-L colors, were some of the best done-up we've seen so far at this world cup, by far.

Interview

Sarkodie Is Not Feeling Any Pressure

The elite Ghanaian rapper affirms his king status with this seventh studio album, No Pressure.

Sarkodie is one of the most successful African rappers of all time. With over ten years of industry presence under his belt, there's no question about his prowess or skin in the game. Not only is he a pioneer of African hip-hop, he's also the most decorated African rapper, having received over 100 awards from close to 200 nominations over the span of his career.

What else does Sarkodie have to prove? For someone who has reached and stayed at the pinnacle of hip-hop for more than a decade, he's done it all. But despite that, he's still embracing new growth. One can tell just by listening to his latest album, No Pressure, Sarkodie's seventh studio album, and the follow-up to 2019's Black Love which brought us some of the Ghanaian star's best music so far. King Sark may be as big as it gets, but the scope of his music is still evolving.

Sonically, No Pressure is predominantly hip-hop, with the first ten tracks offering different blends of rap topped off with a handful of afrobeats and, finally, being crowned at the end with a gospel hip-hop cut featuring Ghanaian singer MOG. As far as the features go, Sark is known for collaborating mostly with his African peers but this time around he branches out further to feature a number of guests from around the world. Wale, Vic Mensa, and Giggs, the crème de la crème of rap in America and the UK respectively all make appearances, as well as Nigeria's Oxlade, South Africa's Cassper Nyovest, and his fellow Ghanaian artists Darkovibes and Kwesi Arthur.
