Solved: The Salomon Kalou goal celebration mystery
The crossed arms gesture was not political, just ill-judged
Thanks to The Spoiler’s extensive sleuthing (we read a newspaper), the mystery surrounding Salomon Kalou’s goal celebrations on Wednesday night has been solved.
The crossed arms gesture was not a controversial “shout out” to a friend in the slammer or a show of support for Ivory Coast political activist Antoine Assale Tiemoko, but simply a replication of the design of the Konvict Muzik logo.
For those who aren’t cool (or who didn’t just look it up on Wikipedia), that’s a record label that has fifteen-minutes-of-fame-are-nearly-over electronica artist Lady Gaga on its books, and is owned by Akon.
Kalou met the annoying rapper at a show at the IndigO2 earlier this week, and was presented with a commemorative disc by his American pal.
Spoiler bonus: If you attend an Akon concert, don’t throw stuff at him. His bodyguards will bring you to him and he’ll bodyslam you. He’s that tough…
