Ghana Striker Asamoah Gyan To Launch Alkayida Dance At Brazil World Cup Featured

Published in Local Football News

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan is set to explode at the June World Cup in Brazil as the Al Ain talisman is not only fixing up his boots for goals at the mundial but also preparing to showcase his usual dancing moves.

The 28 year old attacker is believed to have perfected the popular Ghanaian Alkayida dance and will brandish the new craze-moves with the other members of his team who are still learning the moves.

Gyan has become extremely popular across the globe not only for his footballing life but unique goal celebration dances and is known to have faddish the global Azonto Dance with his crowd-pleasing moves during the 2010 World cup and his short stay at premiership side Sunderland.

The former Udinese star recently uploaded a short video of himself trying to teach his Al Ain team mates of new Ghanaian dance moves to many of his hit songs.

The Alkaida dance which invokes the name of an infamous terrorist organization has a lot of similarities to azonto including an emphasis on side to side moves, incorporating upper and body gestures, and encouraging group routines as well as individual competition. The dance is more relaxed, more free-form, involves more footwork, and incorporates more hip-hop dance moves than azonto does.

Goals celebrations for footballers are many and they vary from player to player. But for Asamoah Gyan, he will continue to dance anytime he scores a goal no matter the situation.

The Black Stars captain is practising the new dance for his goal celebration for the upcoming world cup in Brazil, an action that made him stand out at the 2010 South Africa World Cup.

A source close to the Al Ain poster boy told Myjoyonline that Gyan calls him from time to time to enquire of any new dance move in Ghana adding that he is very serious about it.

“He is very serious about it and in as much as he wants to score goals and win matches for the Black Stars; he wants to have some fun on the pitch as well, especially with his colleagues.”

“If he manages to learn the new dance in time for the World Cup, then don’t be surprised if he finds new partners to help him”, the source added.

Goal celebrations have become an integral part of the game with several players like Marco Tardelli, Peter Crouch, Daniel Sturridge and the Super Eagles of Nigeria team all mimicking popular dance moves but the Ghana all-time top score has become the figure icon for new dance goal celebrations.
