Multi-tasking: Didier Drogba

We like Didier Drogba.  Great striker, interesting backstory, etc.  We were not aware that he possessed any hidden talents.

So, when we first heard the stories that the double D was due to perform on stage, singing, at the Royal Festival Hall in London, we thought: is he, bollocks.

But perhaps not. Sept 23 is looking like the date to mark in your diaries – actually, pencil it in the day before, so you have time to pick up some ear plugs. 

Didier will be performing at a charity concert for African HIV and AIDS victims – a good cause, but surely his talents could be used otherwise? We’re thinking a foundation to help those who’ve also suffered at the hands of an overzealous jar of no-lye hair relaxer.

“Yes, it’s true I can sing,‘ says Drogba. ‘But it’s not what I do best.‘

Interesting.

Anyhoo, in anticipation of DD’s big debut, the music Gods have provided us with an anti-racism track, out next month, featuring D and his boy Michael Essien and some band we’ve never heard of. It’s called “Skin”.  And it’s quite possibly the worst thing we’ve ever heard.  Watch it here, via Chelsea Pies. See if you get past the 30 second mark.  We dare you.

    I love Didi.  He’s absolutely awesome.  Not a great singer, but awesome nonetheless.

    I Tryed to Get Past The 30 Secnd Mark,, But Just ouldnt, It Was too Painful!

    Okay, that song is utter crap.

    I think DD is a quite sexy, even with the hair.  Essien shirtless? Sounds like a plan to me

    And carly – scroll down, there’s a jose memorial going on further down!

    Oh man…I’ll miss Jose!  And I’m not even a Chelsea fan.  I like Droogs too but um…I’ve no interest in hearing him sing.  Essien shirtless….that I’m interested in!

    Well, to be honest, I didn’t even go to the link, that’s how curious I’m feeling right now.
    Not that your post wasn’t interesting, Kickette.

    But, by the way, nothing on Mourinho here?
