LONDON: A host of top footballers have been invited to a rappers party with Akon and Lil Wayne but their team bosses have banned them from attending the Christmas party.
Some of the footballers invited include Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka, El-Hadji Diouf and Djibril Cisse.
Thesun.co.uk reports that the team bosses Phil Scolari and Roy Keane have banned the players from attending the celebration in Miami.
A source said: "The party promises to be the biggest hip-hop bash ever thrown. Lil Wayne and Akon are each pouring hundreds of thousands of pounds into it. The footballers were really up for a big night out but the bosses have said no."
Other celebrities to be present include Kanye West, Leona Lewis, Gwen Stefani and Michael Jackson.
