One of Orlando Pirates' old slogans says 'Once a Pirate, Always a Pirate," but not this one fan who is now a former follower.
Football fans don't jump ships like in politics, or do they? Orlando Pirates' Mama Joy has.
The famous fan revealed her decision in an official video announcement on Thursday night, and this story will never be forgotten in SA football folklore. For as long as Mama Joy's name will come up, she will be known as the lady that used to support Pirates.
So which club has Mama Joy followed now? It is the DStv Premiership's newcomers Royal AM who bought the top-flight status of the club that was Bloemfontein Celtic.
Check out the video of Mama Joy's announcement to leave Pirates for Royal AM.
Meanwhile, Mama Joy's first game as a Royal AM fan will be this weekend at home to Stellebosch FC.
