Black Stars Initiation Dance Will Not Be Scrapped – Dede Ayew

Captain of the Black Stars, Andre Dede Ayew, has said that the ritual initiation dance by the senior team is a way of bringing unity and togetherness among players when they meet in camp; hence there are no plans to abolish the practice.

He said that the ceremony has existed for a long time since its first introduction and has been purposely arranged to welcome new additions to the squad.

“It’s been there before I even came to the team. It’s not going to change,” he noted.

This follows the initiation of new team members who have been called up into the Ghana Black Stars.

The new additions include Mohammed Salisu, Inaki Williams, Tariq Lamptey, Ransford Yeboah, and Stephen Ambrosius, who took turns to dance in camp as they prepared for their international friendlies against Brazil on Friday.

“Unity comes with time and result, but when we look at other ways, it’s a great way to bring people together all in one room, laugh and joke and talk about different things because there is more than enough stress for every game. But you can have some time to enjoy,” Ayew added.

“We had a great time last night as a team, and hopefully, these little things will help bring more joy and laughter and unity,” he said.
