Rangers fans have a new hero in Zambian international striker Fashion Sakala and fans already have a new song for the 24-year-old forward.

Sakala officially announced himself to the Rangers support and Scottish football with an impressive hattrick in the 6-1 win against Motherwell and his goalscoring exploits and humble personality have made him an instant hit with fans.

Gers supporters have adopted a special version of the Shakira track Waka, Waka (this time for Africa) in homage to the forward and it could be heard being belted out at Fir Park.

Whilst fans have been singing this for a few months, it’s naturally been gaining more recognition after the striker’s explosive performance against the Steelmen.

According to fans online, the lyrics to the song are as follows:

Tsamina mina eh eh

Fashion Jnr eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa

He comes from Zambia!

It’s a bit of a tongue twister but if you stick with it you’ll get it and we reckon it’s probably a chant you’ll be hearing a lot more of in the coming weeks and months.

Leicester City also sing a similar chant for Zambian striker Patson Daka, but Rangers fans have been singing this for a few months.

Supporters – buzzing for Sakala following the victory over Motherwell – couldn’t get the chant out of their head come full time:



Let’s hope the song can continue to inspire Fashion Sakala to find the back of the net at Ibrox after a wonderful day for the forward against Motherwell.

Speaking after the match to Sky Sports, Fashion even admitted he would be sleeping with the match ball in his bed after the game.

“It’s safe!”, beamed Sakala. “I’m just waiting for the guys to sign it and to be safe, I’ll sleep with it today!”

Here’s how Rangers supporters reacted to the striker’s performance as they lauded his contribution to the side against Motherwell.
