"In as much as I'm not a Barca fan, but tonight Braca [sic] will beat Liverpool. On a one million naira bet with @mrchidozie," the singer posted confidently on Twitter before the game. However, it was to be one of those nights as Liverpool stunned Barcelona with a 4-0 win, in what is being described as one of the greatest comebacks in Champion's League history. Kcee had no choice but to cough up the cash to the happy fan, who couldn't hide his excitement at winning what is a significant amount in a country where the minimum wage is around 30,000 naira ( $100) a month.

However, in 2018, Arnold opted to play for Norway's national team, which meant he had to renounce his Kenyan citizenship as Norway only recently changed the law to allow dual citizenship.
