Like the tombs of ancient Egypt, tales of witchcraft and those bad luck superstitions your Nan talks about, there’s a new mystic curse of modern times – and it involves international, multi-award winning rapper, Drake.
While Drake aka Drizzy is undoubtedly very popular among sports-stars, for those who have taken a selfie with their musical idol, many have unwittingly become cursed.
Entire football teams have fallen foul of the Canadian star’s photo curse, with Arsenal and Manchester United amongst those tainted with bad luck after taking a snap with Drizzy.
Bosses at Italian football club Roma even banned their players from having their pictures taken with Drake until the end of the season.
But now, it looks like he is using his curse to his own advantage, or rather to the advantage of his NBA team, the Toronto Raptors.
By wearing the kit of the rival team, as they play his team, the Raptors, his curse is just as effective.
The star reckons wearing the Philadelphia 76ers kit as they faced the Raptors helped Toronto beat the Sixers 92-90 in their deciding play-off game.
The Raptors are now playing the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals, and the city of Milwaukee isn’t taking any chances.
City radio station KISS-FM Milwaukee has even pulled Drake songs from its playlists for the whole NBA series.
By stopping his music from playing in the city they hope it’ll avoid the ‘curse’ sticking to the Bucks ahead of the big game.
More proof the Drake ‘curse’ is real
Everything was going so well for Manchester United with Ole Solskjaer at the wheel and then half the squad went to see Drake in concert…
After the gig at the Manchester Arena on March 11, Paul Pogba posed with Drake, while Man United team-mates Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard watched the concert from a box.
The team went on to lose to Wolves, twice, and Barcelona.
Even Manchester City weren’t spared the curse of Drake! Sergio Auguero took a selfie at the same concert, only to miss a penalty against Tottenham in the Champions League.
Arsenal and Aubameyang
Have you noticed that he pulls the same face in all his pictures? Anyway, Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fell victim to the ‘Drake Curse’ after posing for a photo with the musician on 2 April.
The Gunners lost to Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park the following weekend and Aubameyang was benched.
Other footballers have fallen foul of the ‘Drake Curse’, Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho had a picture with Drake before their 5-0 defeat at Bayern Munich while Juventus lost the Champions League final after Drake was pictured wearing their away shirt.
But the curse doesn’t just affect footballers.
Many years before Serena Williams got married, there were rumours that Drake and the tennis star had dated.
Serena was even asked if the rapper was her lucky mascot because he used to turn up at her matches.
When Drizzy showed up to the U.S. Open and Serena shockingly lost to underdog Roberta Vinci, fans started the hashtag #BlameDrake. Awks.
And earlier this year, there were the first indications Drizzy was becoming aware of his power, and might influence the outcome of the Superbowl.
He took to his Instagram story to post a picture of himself with a caption that read;
“To everyone that believes in the Drake curse, good luck tomorrow” as he wore a jumper donning the logos of the four teams who were in the play-off finals – Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, and Rams.
