A Briefly News source said Mofokeng, star of Focalistic’s ‘Pressure’ music video, can be a player Pirates can build around while they are aware of the growing interest in his services.

The source said:

“Mofokeng is highly rated at Orlando Pirates, and the club feel he is somebody who can become the future of the club. The coach has previously spoken highly of him, and they know there is interest from other clubs, but for now, he is part of the team, and they want to keep him. Of course, you cannot tell the future, but for now, Mofokeng is a Pirates player.”
