…as they pay tribute to the man who never bothered to wear a replica shirt!
…. “He would simply paint his body, from afar you would think he is wearing a jersey.”
Zambian football fans woke up on Thursday morning to the sad news that Bright ‘Ba Seba’ Chola is no more.
Below are the tributes for ‘Ba Seba.’
“Popularly known as ba Seba in football circles, a man you wouldnt miss at the stadium,” Mumbo Lombe wrote.
“He never bothered about wearing a replica jersey at the stadium, he would simply paint his body, from afar you would think he is wearing a jersey.
“Go well ba Seba, you added a very unique flavor to our beautiful game.
City of Lusaka fan Bra Gee…..
“In 2013 this man went missing and rumors went viral that he was dead. He resurfaced on the Football terraces.”
“To my shock this morning I have received news that he was found dead in Arrakan Barracks. RIP Ba Seba. If you know him then you’re a true follower of Zambian Football.
Though he was a die hard Buffaloes fan, Ba Seba was never shy at lending his support to other Zambian clubs as well as the Chipolopolo.
“Too bad Ba Seba ngani Power Dynamos naba Mudenda 12, National team CK11, Nkana Sate Sate 9 RIP Ba Seba,” wrote another fan.
Concidently ‘Ba Seba’ was at Edwin Imboela Stadium on Wednesday and watched his beloved Green Buffaloes beat Zanaco.
The self proclaimed Buffaloes fan also watched Sebastian ‘Ba Seba’ Mwansa giving a superb performance for Nkwazi against Buildcon.
“R.I.P ba Seba. Our football fraternity has lost one of the followers of the game…just met him for the last time on Wednesday at Edwin Imboela Stadium Stadium,”
Go Well Ba SEBA! RIP
