In a world as dark as this, entertainment is like flashes of light that people look at in an attempt to forget the pain and burden that life can sometimes be. The most common form of entertainment people look at is football and music—both of these elements bring joy to people’s heart in most cases.

However, there are, of course, exceptions. The light sometimes becomes so vivid that it begins to hurt the eyes. In terms of music, there are celebrities who make one wish that they never developed the ability to hear.

Similarly, in football, some players are so bad at what they do that they become the prime reason for a person’s hair loss. Keeping all this in mind, here are 5 infamous footballers and their musician equivalents.

1) Ali Dia – Roddur Roy


At first, I thought of keeping this as the last slide. However, the thought of you people not reading till the last slide and missing out on knowing one of the most hilarious musicians of the YouTube era was an unpleasant one, so I couldn’t pursue my initial plan.

Enter Roddur Roy—the man who doesn’t give a toss about what people think of him. The level of satire in his songs is on another level entirely. He sings in his own unconventional way, with no thought about the rhythm or tune. He plays his own instrument and tops it all with some beautiful facial expressions.

Similarly, Ali Dia’s story is an inspirational one for conmen. At first, his friend impersonated George Weah and conned then Southampton manager, Graeme Souness, into signing him for the club. Claiming to be the cousin of the legendary footballer with a glorious ongoing international career, he was signed by the club.

Coming on as a sub for Matt Le Tissier, it took only 18 minutes for the others to realise that he knew nothing about playing the sport. He was then substituted. Both of these people are similar in lots of ways.

For one, both are absolutely horrible at what they do and they know it, and yet they do it.
