- Ghana's match with Benin in the ongoing AFCON brought Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy more close
- The two tweeted at each other during the game which ended in a disappointing 2-2 draw for Ghanaians
Ghana's Black Stars opened their 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON 2019) tournament with a 2-2 draw against the Squirrels of Benin.
Ghana conceded under two minutes with Mikael Pote capitalising on a defensive lapse to poke the ball home after receiving a through pass.
The Black Stars bounced back and equalised through Dede Ayew who scored with a powerful low drive after receiving a pass from Jordan Ayew in the box
On the 42nd minute, Jordan Ayew put Ghana ahead. After getting a through pass, Jordan fended off his marker to get into Benin's penalty area and fire into the top right corner.
With the Black Stars in control at the end of the first half, many Ghanaians had thought it was going to be a win.
But it was not meant to be as the team suffered a big blow in the second half. Nine minutes into the half, experienced centre back, John Boye was sent off leaving Ghana to play with 10 men for over 35 minutes.
And the Beninois capitalised on their numerical advantage getting an equaliser in the 63rd minute after Pote scrambled the ball past Richard Ofori in Ghana's goal after a short corner.
While the result may have been disappointing to many Ghanaians, the match itself brought positive news to fans of Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale.
The two deepened their newfound brotherliness as they literally turned into co-commentators on Twitter during the match.
At a point, Stonebwoy tweeted at Shatta Wale to ask for his opinion on the match.
“My brother Eventuarry @shattawalegh How Do You See The Game So Far?”, Stonebwoy asked.
Shatta Wale who was all over Twitter replied immediately saying: “The Benin team ,they don’t know wahis goin on ,they interfereded @stonebwoyb.”
The tweets between the two gathered attention on social media with various Twitter users retweeting and other platforms sharing screenshots.
