Kickoff Magazine broke the news earlier about the unexpected partnership between Mamelodi Sundowns and Roc Nation sports which is a sub-division of Roc Nation. The company is owned by one of the most talented and richest music rapper Jay-Z. The partnership between Roc Nation and Mamelodi Sundowns will help ordinary young football stars to shine on the biggest stage of the world. South African has an abundance of football talent that mostly goes to waste and many young football players throw away their dreams of playing in Europe for big teams, such as Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United. They realize no one is watching from overseas, and they lose their hope of becoming a major star like Benni McCarthy, Lucas Radebe, Steven Pienaar and Aaron Mokeona to name a few.

Enough about Mamelodi Sundowns, the DStv premiership side are not the first South Africans to partner with Jay-Z's Roc Nation sports agency. Roc Nation previously partnered with our very own Springbok captain Siya Kolisi and his teammate Cheslin Kolbe. This two sport stars contributed a lot into sports after they won the Rugby World Cup. Unfortunately, South Africa doesn't have one FIFA World Cup trophy, but Mamelodi Sundowns partnership with Roc Nation can hopefully unearth a number of gems.
