There is no doubt that Africa’s number one rapper, M.I knows how to hold a crowd. He always have this Midas touch that gets his fans eating out of his palms. Therefore, it was no surprise when lovers of great fun and music in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja started an unending sing-along with the star as he dished out back-to-back hits at the Legend Real Deal Experience.

From the moment he was announced the headline act through various publicity campaigns, his fans anticipated the event with every breath. This was evident in the large number of persons who thronged the venue despite the heavy downpour of rain. With a loud ovation they greeted his appearance on stage as if they have been waiting for him all their lives. This indeed is a good testimonial to M.I’s popularity amongst the local fans.

Known for his smooth lyrics and energetic stage presence, alongside a full complimentary live band, M.I gave such an enthralling show that will be memorable in the hearts of the audience. He interacted with them as they enjoyed an endless supply of Nigeria’s first locally brewed stout, Legend.

Speaking after the show, M.I commended the premium brand for putting up such a fantastic show. “All these wouldn’t have been possible without Legend. For me, any opportunity to interact face-to-face with my fans is one I’ll never pass up on. We had great fun here today. At a time, there was practically no song I sang there on stage that the fans didn’t sing along. It’s pure joy man and I want to say a big Thank You to my Abuja fans for all the love.”
It was as if the audience didn’t want the show to end as they continued in the merriment after the curtains were drawn. Legend in its unique tradition ensured that music wasn’t the only thing the fans went home with.

A cash prize of N50, 000 was awarded to the winners of its online talent competition, Rigid Emcee and Magic Steppers. The competition was held on the Brand’s social media pages and live at the event. Fans and consumers of Legend also got to experience the different unique elements of Legend stout in a live simulation room just as in previous editions, while many also went home with exciting prizes like flat screen TVs, generators, refrigerators, among other household items.
