Johannesburg- Kaizer Chiefs soccer star Reneilwe Letsholonyane wishes that people would stop calling him by the nickname Beyonce. 

Speaking to Pearl Modiadie on Zaziwa recently, Reneilwe explained that he does not like the nickname and wishes that people would stop referring to him by it.

About two years ago Kaizer Chiefs fans started calling Reneilwe Beyonce, apparently to poke fun at his physical appearance. 

Reneilwe explained that he has no idea how the nickname was started and that he feels uncomfortable when fans use it, so won't respond when he's addressed by it. 

"Sometimes people think I'm rude because when they call me 'Beyonce', I don't like that name and I wish they would stop using it," he said. 

"I don't know why they call me that, I just don't like it," he went on to add. 

Ag guys, maybe it's time to bury this one?
