Drake Curse Hits Musician As He Misses Out On R51 Million Payout Following Barcelona’s El-Classico Loss
Following Barcelona’s 3-1 El Clasico loss to Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday, Canadian musician Drake lost a massive R10 million wager as he suffered from the “Drake Curse.” He also missed out on a massive R51 million payout.
The multi-award-winning musician placed a two-fold bet on Arsenal and Barcelona on Sunday, believing the two teams would emerge victorious.
Drake even used Instagram to showcase the ticket, which featured a huge payment of R51,267,550.00, in a post that has now been deleted.

Drake’s wager initially paid off because Arsenal defeated Leeds United away from home, just as the rapper had predicted.
Drake used social media to celebrate winning the first leg of his wager after Mikel Arteta’s 1-0 victory over Leeds. He tweeted in reference to his 2013 hit song, “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” writing:
“Now we’re going home.”
However, Drake had to remove the betting ticket he had uploaded on social media after Barcelona disappointed him by losing 3-1 away from home.
Drake has recently been mocked for being incredibly unlucky when it comes to betting. The Canadian rapper allegedly lost a staggering R7,540,253.76 after placing a wager backing Kamaru Usman to knock out Leon Edwards.
Many people now think Drake, as well as the teams or sportsmen he poses with, are cursed as a result of their numerous experiences with varied betting results.
The aforementioned can be used to refer to how Barca fell short after Drake displayed the Blaugrana jersey bearing his OVO Owl emblem on Instagram on Friday.
Barca wore the home kit printed with the artist’s logo as an initiative to honour the internationally acclaimed rapper for reaching 50 billion streams on Spotify.
“Our alliance with Spotify goes beyond a mere commercial relationship. As we have stated on numerous occasions, it is a strategic relationship through which we seek to bring together two worlds that can arouse emotion, namely music and football. This initiative is another example of this desire and the innovative spirit of our collaboration,” said Barcelona’s vice president of marketing, Juli Guiu.
