A Ghanaian song was used in a training video, and the Super Eagles official Instagram account administrator has come under fire for it.

The team’s Instagram administrator set the background music to King Promise’s “Terminator” song before their friendly match versus Saudi Arabia.

This musical selection ignited a flurry of criticism, revealing the divide between fans of Afrobeat music in Ghana and Nigeria.

Fans of Nigeria who were furious at the post asked that it be taken down in the comments section.

If their request is denied, some have even threatened to unfollow the Super Eagles’ official Instagram page.

Others demanded that the page administrator be fired.

However, given how frequently Ghanaians and other nations exploit Nigerian music in their social media posts, these Nigerian fans’ actions have been called hypocritical.

Others counter that Nigerians want to take advantage of any chance to market their music.

According to music observers, the incident just highlights the conflict between Afrobeats, which is promoted by Nigerian musicians, and highlife, a genre with strong roots in Ghana.

The Super Eagles are concentrating on their next international friendly encounter against Saudi Arabia in addition to this social media banter.

Kickoff is scheduled for Friday evening at 5 p.m. at the Estádio Municipal de Portimão in Portugal.

Next week, Nigeria will play another friendly encounter against Mozambique after the match against Saudi Arabia.

With a critical match against Lesotho set for November, these friendlies are an essential part of the Super Eagles’ preparation for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
