Mothobi Mvala's middle name will leave you in stitches. (Check it out).

It is often the case that in most instances that many of us are given two names at birth. In African traditions often at birth a child is given an african name and a "English" name.

This has been mostly a tradition practiced from generation to generation by many of us.

Over the years unique middle names have also been given to fellow footballers. Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder maestro Mothobi Mvala has one unique middle name. The 26 year Theunissen born player's middle name is "Madala".

The name Madala is loosely translated to "Old Man". At this stage in time we are unable to report if it is indeed his middle name or just a nickname. According to certain sources, Mvala's does own that name.

Former Bafana Bafana star player Kagisho Dikgacoi also has a unique middle name. Dikgacoi also goes by the name "Evidence". Mothobi Mvala is currently one of the most exciting midfielders in the DStv Premiership after having made a name for himself with Highlands Park and now with Mamelodi Sundowns.
