UP-Tuks striker Odwa Makha was a star of 2017 after piling up an insane seven goals for the Pretoria side on their way to title victory. With Varsity Football around the corner (get it😂?) Nick McGregor chats to the super star and get his opinions on some very important subjects…
Ok, first off, pretty important question. Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi?
Odwa: In a football aspect Cristiano Ronaldo, because he is a hard worker and a born winner.
Well, that takes us to our next question… Manchester United or Manchester City?
Odwa: Liverpool! 🔴🔴🔴 But if I have to choose, then Manchester City.
If you didn’t play football, what sport would you play?
The FIFA World Cup 18 pool stages are almost done and dusted. From what you’ve seen so far, who’s going to win the FIFA World Cup 2018?
These Ronaldo fans (🙄). Hip-hop or house music?
Odwa: Hip-hop 🔊
Kendrick Lamar or Kanye West?
Odwa: Kendrick Lamar, his lyrics are more meaningful. Kanye West is a strange guy.
Babes Wodumo or Nicki Minaj?
Odwa: My girlfriend Joeshe Lite 😂 but if I had to choose, Babes Wodumo.
Moving onto your illustrious Varsity Football career. What was the best goal you’ve ever scored?
Odwa: Varsity Football final, when I scored the winning goal against TUT and caused some heartbreak.
What was your greatest memory playing Varsity Football?
Odwa: Helping the team win when everybody had written us off. I scored two goals against Wits which helped us get back into the title chase. 🥇
Who is your role model?
Odwa: My late father, he was a hard worker and always believed in me and my abilities. Hence, I dedicate every game to him.
What is the football dream?
Making it as a professional footballer with a degree. I’m on the right track as this is my last six months and I will have my degree. I can fully focus on my dream as a football player as age is not on my side so I need to give it my all.
