2016 NAIRA BET FAN FEST: as it happened

Phyno Live on Stage at 2016 Naira Bet Fan Fest
It was all fun and excitement yesterday 28th of May at the 2016 Naira Bet Fan Fest.


The Naira Bet Fan Fest was all about creating a unique and wonderful ambiance for football fans to watch the 2016 UEFA Champions League Final (Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid) live on giant screen. It was not about football alone, it was music and football infusion all in one night.

Football lovers started arriving the venue which was Fantasy Land, Ikoyi around 4PM even though the Champion League Final was slated for 7:45PM.....Wandering what the fans were doing? You think they were bored? No they weren’t. They were enjoying music rendition from a ‘’solid DJ’’ who dished out tune after tune as various up and coming artistes climb the stage to showcase their music prowess. Not only that, there was comedy, football game show like football quiz completion, football commentary show and a whole lot more. Participants won instant cash right there on the stage.. 

Like they always say, time flies when you are having fun. Before we knew it, it was 7:45PM and it was time for the match we all have been waiting for. Quickly before then, the MC signaled the arrival of SKUKI one of the top artiste billed to thrilled the fans while we await PHYNO who was also expected to perform at the fest. Skuki quickly climbed on stage performing some of their hit songs, putting the fans in the right frame of mind and then the match commenced.

Impressive display by both teams....At half time, it was 1-0 in favour of Real Madrid as their captain Sergio Ramos had put them ahead even though Atletico had a clear chance to level up when they were awarded a spot kick which Griezmann lost. 

The first half ended 1-0 as Segun Agebede, veteran sport analyst, Benny Iroha Ex Super Eagles International and George Essien of Radio Continental climbed on stage to analyse the first half leading to the second half.

79 minutes into the game, Carrasco levelled up for Atletico Madrid amidst jubilation and most fans were of the opinion that the game had just begun and indeed the game just began. At full time, it was still 1-1 and then the artiste we all had been waiting for arrived. Guess who it was? It was PHYNO.

Excitement and jubilation trailed his arrival as fans were already waiting in anticipation for him, they couldn't  wait for him to perform that night. It was extra time so fans had to wait till the end of the game before they could see him perform.

At 120 minutes, it was stalemate leading to penalty shoot out which Real Madrid eventually won 5-3. That was how Madrid claim its 11th Champion League Title under Zinedine Zidane who took over barely 6 months ago and Arsenal fans are still hoping on Arsene Wenger after 20 years at club. Shame on Arsenal Fans...

It dint end there, PYHNO wrapped up the show when he came on stage , dishing out hit after hit. It was fun. If you weren’t there, you missed,
