According to Twitter, the real reason Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi came to Mzansi was to see our favourite queen of the dance floor Zodwa Wabantu.
This joke was started by a fake Messi account which tweeted “IZODWA YABANTU AM COMING #automatically on my way.”
This was not helped by Zodwa’s boss DJ Tira who also jokingly tweeted that Messi was asking for Zodwa’s numbers.

Twitter did not need a second invitation to jump on the bandwagon with the joke in a series of hilarious Tweets
Upon finding out that Messi was apparently in the country to see her, Zodwa was prepared to cut her trip to Australia short
