Home Sports Local Sports Azonto or Alkayida dance for world cup

With nearly six months to the world cup in Brazil, many Ghanaian football fans are wondering the type of celebration which the Black Stars will subscribe to after scoring a goal.

After the introduction of dance as a means of celebration by Asamoah Gyan at the African Cup of Nations in Angola some four years ago, dancing after scoring a goal has been the major practice of almost all the players in the team with some even transferring the act to their club side in Europe.

Barely 147 days to the world cup and the popular Azonto dance being metamorphosed into Alkayida dance, football fans  are pondering if the team will still stick to their Azonto movement or migrate to the Alkayida dance.

For many, the Azonto dance will be very significant as it tends to sell the uniqueness of the African culture which can also be translated into a form of dance. With the world cup being hosted by Brazil, the popular Samba dance will be very much on display by the Brazilians when they score a goal, hence the need for Black stars to also subscribe to a particular dance when the  world cup begins.

Though not certain the type of dancing moves which will be adopted in Brazil, skipper Asamoah Gyan will surely be leading the crusade in spelling out the celebration rules. John Boye, who recently featured in a hip life musical video will be on hand to assist his captain in this project.

Returnee Kevin Prince Boateng, was spotted in Cairo trying to sharpen his dancing skills for the world cup after scoring, but will certainly need more tutorials from the Asamoah Gyan to be perfect.

Its very certain that if the Black Stars performs incredibly well in Brazil, the dance which originated from the west African country will soon become a global dance.
