The Indoor sports hall of the University of Lagos was packed full last Saturday with over a thousand students and young adults who had come to watch Ice Prince, Reminisce and Patoranking perform at the finale of the MTV Base ‘On Tour With Shuga’.
The event, anchored by MTV VJ Ehiz also had actors of the award winning series, Emmanuel Ikubese, Sharon Ezeamaka and Timini Egbuson and DJs Humility and Neptune both of who added colour to the night with their mixes.
The four-hour event featured a variety of exciting activities including free HIV testing and counseling, meet and greet sessions with the cast of the series, auditions for a presenter of the MTV Shuga 4 premiere red carpet as well as Q & A sessions bothering on topics around HIV and AIDS.
One of the high points of the evening was the video shoot for ‘Catch Me’, the theme song of Shuga season 4. The shoot had Patoranking, Ice Prince and Reminisce perform the song to the excited audience all of who swayed and sang along.
Reacting to the success of the mini festival, Head of Marketing and Partnerships, MTV Shuga, Mr Emmanuel Uduma said, ‘We are very excited at how this turned out. The support was amazing and we are grateful to every one including the Super Star acts that contributed to the success of this event’
