"I do not have juju! Only God has juju!"
Ghana superfan Samuel Aggrey is not happy. He claims the Angolan police smashed his ceremonial pot following the Black Stars' victory over Burkina Faso because they suspected him of being a witch doctor. PUMA Football arranged to meet the man Ghanaians call "Obuor" or "Stone" to find out the truth.
PUMA Football thinks it may have been hexed by a very scary looking Ghanaian witch doctor. Admittedly, it wasn't a good time to take his picture. His team had just been trounced 3-1 by an Ivory Coast side that looked like they'd finally decided to win this tournament. If that wasn't reason enough for his grumpiness, he was being dive-bombed by giant moths and a torrential post match downpour was in grave danger of ruining his red face paint. If there's one thing that winds up an African shaman it's having his makeup run.
Didier Drogba is not afraid of much and that includes Emmanuel Eboué trying to stab him with a fork. Still that doesn't deter the mischievous full-back from trying to perforate his significantly bigger team-mate. Despite a sticky start to their Africa Cup of Nations thanks to a 0-0 draw with Burkina Faso, spirits are high in the Côte d'lvoire camp.
