Former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates defender Mark Fish needed a place to hide as his tribute to fallen legendary musician Hugh Masekela went completely wrong.
Fish initially posted a picture of himself with Sipho 'Hotstix' Mabuse, before quickly removing it after being made aware that the man he was standing next to was actually not Bra Hugh.
Twitter had a field day, and Fish's followers, including two the PSL teams from Cape Town, reacted humorously to the 43-year-old's initial tribute to Masekela even a day after the tweet was posted and removed online.

'Hotstix' Mabuse, the musician pictured with Fish, also had something to say about the mix up, assuring the legendary footballer that he was alive and well.
Fish quickly apologised for the mix up, and later posted the correct picture of Masekela, but it looks like the apology fell on deaf ears as Tweeps continue to find it funny.
