Rangers fans quite literally cannot get Fashion Sakala out of their heads

Rangers fans have a new hero in Fashion Sakala but days on from the player’s emphatic Fir Park hattrick they – quite literally – cannot get the Zambian striker, or his chant, out of their heads.

The player’s catchy chant – based on Shakira track Waka Waka (this time for Africa) – has been reverberating around the heads of Gers fans everywhere all week long.

The chant has got louder both in the stands and in our heads ever since Sakala’s hattrick in the 6-1 win over Motherwell.

Just in case you don’t know it – or need reminding – here’s the lyrics to the Fashion Sakala chant below:


Tsamina mina eh eh

Fashion Jnr eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa

He comes from Zambia!

Rangers fans are delighted that the player has finally burst on the scene at Ibrox but plenty are demented by the catchy chant being stuck in their heads.

I don’t about anyone reading this, but the regularity with ”He comes from Zambia” is popping into my head since Sunday has been relentless.

I’m not the only one, as Rangers fans everywhere admit that the catchy song will not stop and that they are caught in a loop of singing it:

Fashion’s three-goal display against the Steelmen and his positive post-match interview have certainly endeared him to the Ibrox support.

The Gers faithful admire the striker’s bravery in his play and there’s a real feeling that his vibrant personality comes across in his playing style.

Fans will be hoping the striker can kick on from here and leave an impression on the side after a stuttering start to the latest campaign, at least in terms of collective team performances over 90 minutes.

But could the emergence of Sakala also light a fire under one key Rangers player yet to hit the heights of previous campaigns?
