Dide hints at finally revealing identity as fans left in dark over Premier League player

Dide hints at finally revealing identity as fans left in dark over Premier League player

Fans have been left in the dark over the true identity of Dide, who claims to be a Premier League footballer

Rapper Dide, who claims to be a Premier League footballer has hinted at finally revealing his true identity.

Back in April, Dide released a track named ‘Thrill’ and many fans around the country have been trying to work out who the top flight player behind the mask is.

Everton boss Sean Dyche was asked if he knew any secret rappers within his squad, he said: “Seriously, I can’t catch my breath. That even gets a question?”

Since the release of Dide's first single, fans have linked the likes of Eddie Nketiah, Sheyi Ojo, Wilfried Zaha and Reiss Nelson to the person behind the mask.

Now, speaking in a recent interview after the launch of his mixtape ‘Who is Dide’, he told the Evening Standard: “I train in the morning or the afternoon, depending on the schedule. In the evening, we have a lot of downtime as football players, and instead of going out, going shopping, and all these other things that some players do, I prefer to stay at home and relax.

“I just kind of took the gamble to release it, and then obviously, the rest is history. I just feel that especially in football, there’s always people with different opinions, and I feel like, when we’re listening to music, you always want to have a face to the music that’s being played.”

Dide added: “With this whole mask theory, it kind of forces you to listen to the music more, and appreciate the lyrics that I’m saying and the stories that I will tell you.”


When asked if he has heard his teammates speculate about the player behind the mask, Dide said: “It’s happened a couple of times but obviously, in order to protect the identity of it, I’ve got to be ruthless. I can’t really allow anyone to know that it’s me, or to give them an idea that it could be.”

Dide was then questioned on whether he will reveal his true identity, he said: “Who knows? In the future, maybe I’ll show my face. Maybe even the next song I’ll show my face.

“We’ll just have to wait and see what happens I just want people to appreciate the music that’s being played so far.”
