STOPILLA Sunzu scored Zambia’s winning goal at the Gabon 2012 Africa Cup of Nations and the fans went crazy for the lofty 1989-born lofty defender.
Exactly five years later, while all eyes of soccer loving Zambians are back in Gabon for a non-participatory 2017 tournament spectatorship, Stopilla coined a spectacular way to remain on the lips of football lovers.
An eccentric gift for a deserving celebrity wife called Gift. It surely cost him over US$100,000 or K1,000,000 local currency just to say “thank you for giving me a beautiful wife”.
But it’s not like the ‘prince charming’ was such a surprise stunner because Stopilla’s wife is far from ugly, if you ask me.

ZAMBIAN FOOTBALLER BUYS WIFE LUXURY CAR FOR GIVING HIM A…
The enterprising Lille OSC defensive midfielder wasn’t even around to deliver the slick SUV. He was apparently inking a five-month loan deal with Russian side Arsenal Tula, but his buddies did the honours in fashionable style at East Park Mall in Lusaka.
They blindfolded Gift and led her to the car park where she screamed upon seeing how she had been gifted.

Immediately afterwards social media went awash with comments mostly from women who posted remarks ranging from “congratulations” to “I accept the Sunzu challenge.”
