Joseph Langabell has firmly attributed the failure of the Ghana Black Stars to make any impact in international tournaments to the bad luck of the teams’ stylist, Abiba.
Hinged on the disastrous outing at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup by Ghana, Joseph Langabell, the Black Stars’ chief drummer, has cited Abiba as the reason for the team’s World Cup defeat after she emerged to have the players’ hair styled.
In furtherance, the charismatic cheerleader of the team recounted that the night before the match against Uruguay, when he ran into her in the team’s camp, he reportedly advised the team manager to fire her because she brings bad luck to the team.
He claimed that he told the management that the team had bad luck because this Abiba was in Brazil in 2014. According to Langabell, the team performed well in AFCON 2015 and advanced to the finals before Abiba visited the camp leading to the team’s heartbreaking loss to Ivory Coast.
Then the 2019 AFCON took place in Egypt. After the team advanced to the elimination round and Abiba visited the camp, they lost their semifinal match against Tunisia, who Ghana had previously defeated.
‘I have been with the Black Stars for a very long time so I know what’s happening with the team. There’s this lady who mostly visits the players at the team hotel to work on their hairstyles. Anytime this lady called Abiba visits the players to work on their hairstyles at the team hotel she’ll be there from evening till the next morning and I’m surprised,” he argued.
