Arsenal captain Aubameyang gets new braided hairdo inspired by rapper Travis Scott while serving in Gabon

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG has shocked fans by getting a new haircut on international duty.

The Arsenal striker wore a new look on social media after Gabon qualified for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.

The 31-year-old shared an Instagram story from Willy Aubameyang, his half-brother and former international colleague, showcasing his new braids.

The 34-year-old artists tagged Travis Scott and Sean Paul in the post, a hint that they were the inspiration behind the new trim.

Her older brother also sported the braids, jokingly captioning the post, “New song coming soon.”

Although Aubameyang turning to singing seems unlikely, he wouldn’t be the first football star to give it a shot.

Earlier this month, fellow countryman Zlatan Ibrahimovic performed a duet with Bologna manager Sinisa Mihajlovic at a music festival.

Although there are doubts over Aubameyang’s musical career, he is thriving on the pitch – scoring and assisting in Gabon’s 3-0 win over DR Congo.


Gabon’s qualification is not good news for Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, who is expected to be without his captain for up to a MONTH when he takes part in the Africa Cup of Nations.

The tournament is scheduled to be held from January 9 to February 6 next year.

Arteta’s relationship with Aubameyang hasn’t been great recently, dropping the striker for the North London derby against Tottenham.

The two are believed to have settled their differences, however, with Arteta wanting to ‘move on’ and finish the season strong.
