French Montana made fun of footballer Cristiano Ronaldo after Morocco eliminated Portugal from the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The rapper, who is Moroccan-American, boasted about his nation’s 1-0 victory over Portugal on Instagram on Saturday, December 10.
The Moroccan rapper posted a picture showing some Moroccan players racing after Portugal team leaders Ronaldo and Pepe alongside a pack of lions. Montana captioned the picture with “Ronaldo u had your time g … it’s Morocco time.”
“LEGENDARY ON ANOTHER LEVELLLLLL!” Montana wrote, adding the phrase “HAMDULILLAH” (“praise be to god”).
Morocco’s major city, Casablanca, is where French Montana was born and raised before relocating to the United States as a teenager.
After defeating Portugal on Saturday, Morocco became the first African nation to advance to the World Cup semifinals. The Lions participated in the World Cup for the first time in 1970, and their previous best result was losing to West Germany in the Round of 16 in 1986.
Morocco will now play France on Wednesday in a semifinal encounter (December 14). Argentina plays Croatia in the other World Cup semifinal match tonight (December 13).
Morocco is currently two games away from winning the World Cup. Even though there are only two games left, they are the toughest of the international competition.
Morocco will first play France, who has been a powerhouse, and then either Argentina or Croatia, the 2018 world cup’s runners-up, if they manage to defeat France.
Who Is French Montana?
Rapper Karim Kharbouch, best known by his stage name French Montana, is a Moroccan-American. He was born on November 9, 1984.
He was born and reared in Morocco before moving to the United States at the age of 13.
He is the creator of Coke Boys Records and Cocaine City Records, which it replaced. After releasing independent music for years, he inked a combined recording contract with Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group and Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Records in 2012.
After releasing his first mixtape in 2007, French Montana achieved his first major success in 2010 with the song “Choppa Choppa Down.” On May 21, 2013, he made his first studio album, Excuse My French.
Jungle Rules, Montana’s second studio album, was released in July 2017 and reached its top position of number three on the Billboard 200.
The single “Unforgettable” (with Swae Lee), which was Montana’s only song to top virtually every chart in the world, served as his album’s promotional tool.
With his parents and younger brother, French Montana traveled to New York City in the middle of the 1990s. They made their home in the South Bronx.
When he first came, the rapper could only speak French and Moroccan Darija Arabic. He later learned English in the streets and at Roosevelt and Lehman high schools in the Bronx.
His mother chose to stay in New York with her children due to the lack of possibilities back home. But after two years of struggle, the musician’s father decided to relocate back to Casablanca.
At the time, his mother was expecting their younger sibling, who was born in America shortly after his father left for Morocco. Then, French Montana’s mother was reliant on government welfare programs because she had three children to cater for.
Kharbouch eventually found himself the family’s main provider.
Cristiano Ronaldo – End Of An Era
The all-time leading goal scorer for Portugal did not have a memorable World Cup in 2022.
First off, Ronaldo’s formerly bright and valiant career is clearly nearing its end. It was anticipated that this might be his final World Cup participation.
If he had realized his goal of becoming one of the best players to ever play the game of football and won the World Cup for his nation, it would have been a momentous and historic accomplishment.
Since the start of current football season, though, things have not been going well for him in his football career. His performance has reached a record low.
Following Portugal’s elimination from the 2022 World Cup, a tearful image of Cristiano Ronaldo and family members departing from the airport in Qatar has surfaced on social media.
The only trophy that the former Real Madrid player is still lacking from his trophy case is the World Cup.
Ronaldo was seen crying as he entered the dressing room after Ronaldo and Portugal were defeated by Morocco in the tournament’s quarterfinal.
Even though Ronaldo hasn’t made an official announcement about his future, his performance in the quarterfinal of this year’s championship may be his last for his nation after Portugal was eliminated from the Qatar World Cup.
Ronaldo and his family were seen leaving Qatar on a private plane in a video that was put on YouTube and one that Ronaldo’s partner Georgina shared on her Instagram story.
As things stand right now, the seasoned striker will probably rest up before announcing in January where he will continue his football career.
Manchester United just ended his contract, and there have been rumors that he would make a risky move to Saudi Arabia.
