The special toast was done with a purpose-designed Star Magnum bottle which popped as the clock ticked midnight. Hundreds of thousands of Lagosians, tourists, music fans and celebs clicked glasses and sipped on Star, as happy new year wishes took over Eko Atlantic.
Africa’s favourite rapper M.I stunned fellow label mate and multiple award winning rapper Ice Prince when he joined him on stage to perform his hit classic “Aboki’ at the Lagos Countdown powered by STAR which held at Eko Atlantic Victoria Island Lagos on the 31st of December 2013.
"I’m wishing you a great year ahead, the popular rapper chorused repeatedly, 2014 is your year,” he emphasised to the audience as he joined Ice Prince on stage.
The exciting duo went on to perform for over 30 minutes some of M.I’s classic songs such as Action Film, Undisputed Champion and African Rapper (No 1) and others to the delight of the teeming crowd before bowing off the stage.
Stellar performances from each artiste rivalled the pyrotechnic fireworks for effect as each artiste strove to ensure that guests enjoyed every minute of the almost 12 hour event.
The Lagos Countdown ended with a sensational performance by fast rising artiste, Burna Boy.
