In Rio Ferdinand’s words:
“These guys transcending African music/culture around the world! Look forward to seeing them perform tonight! ???♂️ #salute”
CitySports reports that the formal Manchester united player visited Lagos tech market (Computer village) in Ikeja, Lagos..
The inaugural Guinness Night Football campaign was concluded in Nigeria earlier this month, as Abuja rocked to the rhythm of African’s favourite sport, and the country’s finest 5-a-side talents competed for a spot at the Pan African extravaganza in Lagos.
There was music, dance, and a foosball spectacle, all of which was appreciated by supporters while they enjoyed the flavours of Guinness, as Nigeria followed in the footsteps of Uganda, Cameroon and Kenya with their own unforgettable GNF finale.
Nigeria is a country that loves its football and its Guinness, and the revellers who made the trip to the B.M.O. Events Arena on January 18 were well rewarded with a wonderful atmosphere and a raucous celebration of sport and music.
