Kaiser Chiefs: Amakhosi For Life

English rock band Kaiser Chiefs, who named themselves after this year’s PSL champions, have sent their congratulations to the Amakhosi via the Siya crew.

The band hails from Leeds, England, and are big fans of Championship side Leeds United, for whom Lucas Radebe spent several years playing for.

 

Chiefs were such fans of the former Bafana Bafana captain during his days in Yorkshire that their name was derived from his old South African club, Kaizer Chiefs.


Following Chiefs’ league winning campaign, the band’s bass player, Simon Rix, has sent a special congratulatory message to the club that they named themselves after.

 

Rix sent this message to the crew, "Congratulations on reclaiming the glory, Kaizer Chiefs. Amakhosi for life. Love, the other Kaiser Chiefs."

 

Radebe was fortunate enough to win the National Soccer League (NSL) twice with the Glamour Boys, in 1991 and 1992, before making his big move to Leeds in 1994.

 

Over a decade on from when ‘Rhoo’ last won a South African top-flight title, the band who were inspired by him in 1996 have reason to celebrate knowing that they’re named after champions once again.
