Khune's cute 1m IG followers celebration

Fame & Fortune

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune reached one million Instagram followers this weekend and his wife Sphelele organized a special something through her events company. 

Having had a long and successful career already, Khune is far too familiar with achievements, but his most recent one is something of a different nature.

The veteran has earned various accolades for his work on the field, but reaching one million Instagram followers is a clear demonstration of how popular and influential the 34-year-old is.

Can't keep a good man down

In recent times, the Ventersdorp-born star has struggled to hit his usual heights as Mzansi's best shot-stopper. However, the resilient Chiefs man has not shown any signs of giving up and has in fact reminded many of his incredible talents thanks to his sensational performance in the DStv Compact Cup this past weekend.

That impressive display coincided with him becoming the most followed active DStv Premiership footballer. His social media success called for a special celebration, which was in the trusted hands of his wife Sphelele - who appears to have planned and coordinated a wonderful poolside lunch.

Although the couple shared very little of how the lunch went, we suspect that it was nothing short of special as one million followers is no easy feat.

Did you know?

Khune has kept 42 clean sheets in 91 matches for Bafana Bafana.

Your thoughts, please?

Should Khune be reinstated as the Chiefs number one, even when Daniel Akpeyi is back?
