Apparently, the performers were off the hook & there were some sick collaborations, lets see, D’banj & Kelly Rowland; Asa & HHP (RSA); Jozi (RSA) & P-Square; Cassette (RSA), Jua Cali (Kenya), Ikechukwu & Naeto C. There were also performances from 9ice, Flo-Rida, The Game & Seun Kuti. Jay Jay Okocha kicked a ball. A tribute was made to the late great Mama Africa, Miriam Makebe. Now, we have to wait till the 29th, to see any coverage. Yours truly, will be hunting for it on the web, and will definately find it.
Imagine how happy I was when I thought today was the 27th, thanks to my watch leaping 4 days ahead. Damn you watch. Update: Damn you slow typing skills. In the 50mins, it took to type this [& update my wikipedia article on D’banj], all the other blogs posted theirs, Darnit!
