It was indeed a night for celebrities, industry’s biggest and professional basket ballers to have fun, network and also workout as the third edition of ‘MTN FaceOff’ ‘dunked’ at Harbor Point on Sunday 15, April 2012.
Now, for those wondering what could be fun as regards seeing a sultry Tiwa Savage run the length of a basket ball court, a petite Tosyn Bucknor gasping for breath after futile attempts at scoring and a gorgeous Muna literally strolling on the pitch? That is like a constellation of the hottest Nigerian female entertainers under one roof! And in sport outfits (Think about it).
However , the ‘Turn Table' team which included the likes of DJ Neptune(Man is also good with the basketball) , Dotun Coolfm who enjoyed himself all through the game and a rather Lazy DJ Vinnie, eased off the threat posed by these ladies by winning the game, although they had to ‘muscle’ their way to victory. The ladies showed finer skills. (We had to emphasize the match involving the ladies because…we just love them).
The event which was co-hosted by Tee A and Laddy D of industry nite also saw Lynxx, Sound Sultan, Sauce Kid, Dr Sid, Eldee, Da-Ray, Skales, Flo of Kentro, Iyanya, AY, Mai, Chuddy K, Ace and a host of other basketball buffs evenly spread between Don Jazzy and DJ Jimmy Jatt’s team, showcasing deft basketball moves. The movie industry was also ably represented by Kunle Afolayan.
The Nigerian dance industry was not to be left out. From DNMT crew thrilling the crowd to the sensational Kaffy and her dancers swathing the arena with energy, it was a perfect blend of dance, sports and comedy, yes! Comedy. Never knew we had so many ‘preggie’ male Nigerian celebrities .Well, MTN FaceOff 2012 just called my bluff!.
