Fans think they know identity of masked rapper who claims to be Premier League footballer
| Last updated
Like the Premier League isn't exciting and intense enough, one footballer has somehow found time to record a rap track.
Last week, the song titled 'Thrill' dropped by the artist Dide on YouTube, and has already amassed close to 900,000 views on the video platform.
The unknown footballer is seen wearing a mask in the video as he performs the track in London.
As the music video is set in London, it has led many fans to believe that the rapper plays for a London-based club.
However, seven of the 20 teams in the Premier League are in London, so that doesn't exactly narrow down the search much.
Despite that, some fans are convinced they know who the mystery footballer is.
That name is Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah - with some fans pointing out that Dide is actually an anagram of Eddi.
One convinced fan wrote: "So the ‘unknown’ premier league rapper known as ‘DIDE’ dropped a track on YouTube 3 days ago.
"Except he isn’t unknown; he is Eddie Nketiah of Arsenal. No doubt about it."
Lyrics in the track also suggest it could be an Arsenal player, with 'my team stay winning' and 'every game is like a final' potentially referring to the Gunners' title charge.
Alongside the cryptic music video, Dide also posts to a Instagram account, which provides fans more clues as to who is behind the mask.
In his bio the rapper declares: "Rapper at home. Footballer on the pitch."
However, a recent post may suggest that the rapper may not be Nketiah after all.
That is because in a new picture where Dide is sat in the back of a car, he adds the caption: "It's about time we think outside of the box."
And where do you find strikers like Nketiah? Inside the box scoring poachers, of course.
Some Premier League stars have actually ruled themselves out, with Michail Antonio and Callum Wilson saying the rapper isn't them in a recent podcast.
"Obviously, he says south London, big time Premier League player, I got my own money, so it ain't me," Antonio said The Footballer's Football podcast.
"I don't think it's Wilfried Zaha, his body shape could be Nketiah."
The BBC reached out to Dide's manager, who said the rapper wasn't giving interviews at this time.
