Former Orlando Pirates striker Kermit Erasmus has had a fan name his baby after the striker, and now goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane has had the same thing happen to him. What do you make of this?
The shot-stopper, who is a father himself, recently received a text message from someone close to him, explaining that he had named his newborn son after the former Mpumalanga Black Aces man.
The message reveals that the person, who could be a family member or a close friend, was on the hunt for a name for his son, and that he wanted the little boy to be named after someone influential in his life. Thus, resulting in him naming the baby Thapelo Jackson.
Mabokgwane took to Instagram to reveal the WhatsApp message. Check it out below!
