Royal AM are struggling this season, but Joy Chauke isn’t giving up hope yet.

MamaJoy, as she is affectionately known, is the club’s number one fan and a good friend of team owner Shauwn ‘MaMkhize’ Mkhize.

With Royal AM flirting with relegation this season, MamaJoy took to social media to show support for Mkhize and reaffirm her faith that things will get better.

Sundowns compound Royal AM’s woes

The KwaZulu-Natal side are trying to remain optimistic after suffering a second defeat in a row to Mamelodi Sundowns.

As noted by Times LIVE, the Brazilians won the first game 1-0 before winning 2-0 in the reverse fixture.

MamaJoy even pleaded for mercy from Masandawana before the first game.

Royal AM dragged into relegation fight

The successive losses to Sundowns have put the club in a precarious situation.

They are two points above Richards Bay in the relegation/promotion playoff place, with two games left to play.

Royal AM will take on Chippa United and then Swallows, while the Natal Rich Boys will play Cape Town City and then Stellenbosch.

Fans troll MamaJoy

With the KZN side facing a tough end to the season and MamaJoy still hopeful, fans have taken to social media to troll her.

Having ditched Orlando Pirates for Royal AM, some suggested she jump ship before it sinks.


“You have been promising to bounce back since last year😅.”


“Mamajoy, you must jump ship before it's too late.”


“Joy is gone...Mama Sad.”


“Mamzo, if Royal Am goes to Motsepe foundation will you go down with them?”


“You will bounce back in Motsepe Foundation.”

MamaJoy booed by Pirates supporters

Sports Brief previously reported how MamaJoy Chauke was booed by supporters of Pirates.

The fans are upset with MamaJoy after she ditched them to support Royal AM instead.

The passionate supporter asked that Buccaneers fans show her more respect in future.
