Former South African football star Junior Khanye rolled back the times as he starred in an exhibition match where he laid an exquisite assist for musician Cassper Nyovest. Here's a look.

The story

The ex-Kaizer Chiefs attacker was one of the star attendees of the celebrity match. The event is understood to have been organised by rapper Big Zulu and it saw various artists represent the genre of the music they make.

There were four teams representing Hip Hop, Gqom, Maskandi and Amapiano, with matches taking place at the Bidvest Stadium in Tshwane.

A star-studded affair

Most notably the retired baller set up Cassper Nyovest's goal for Team Hip Hop after lovely footwork in the middle of the park before picking a well-timed pass for the Gusheshe star, who provided an emphatic finish.

The matches were not short of familiar faces as football pundit and former player Phumudzo Manenzhe also made an appearance for one of the sides. Khanye was also seen with the likes of SK Khoza, Sjava and Kwesta among some of the entertainment industry's biggest names.
