I’m not sure if you are affected by the gilabola season, but I know that my wife and son is not exempted from it. My wife is driving me nuts these days. She has gone football mad. Apparently the world cup fever has gotten to her too! She kept pestering me to buy her football jerseys for herself and our son so that she won’t look so left out when she goes to mamak to join the crowd to watch football. There are times I wonder if this is just an excuse for her to raid the shopping mall again. After all, it’s mid year and there’s terribly a lot of sales. Yes, she’s quite a shopaholic. She can never resist a good sale. Her logic: The world is always a better place after buying stuff that you like. I never understood that, but I can understand her passion for football.

She likes watching football, so do I. It’s really fun watching football, especially when the rest of the world is doing the same thing too. She loves the hype and all the positive energy while cheering for the teams that she’s rooting for, while me, I like watching the players technique and strategies. I’m not much of a footballer, but I know a good game when I see one. 🙂

A few days ago, I heard my wife and son humming and singing to this #gilabola song by Joe Flizzow.

Have you listened to Joe Flizzow’s new song, #gilabola? I’ve been listening to my other half singing it and it’s stuck in my head right now. I can’t get it out of my head. Very catchy and addictive.

This is the song that I meant, #GilaBola by. Joe Flizzow. Pretty cool, huh?

Well, join me in the madness! Learn the words in the lyrics video and sing along, folks.

The lyric can also be found HERE: The lyrics talk about the typical habits of ‘football mad’ fans of all ages and origins, like staying up all night, face painting and more.

FIFA World Cup does not happen everyday. Join me and the rest of the world in the #gilabola craze in the Football Mad Territory and make sure you also share all your football-mad moments with the hashtag #gilabola on Instagram! Who knows, your submissions could even appear in their next video.
