But away from the field, the young and old mingled freely in the nightlong party held at the Fanzone – also called the Village – on Saturday. DJ Enruff ensured that the fans and revelers were kept on their feet till the small hours of Sunday morning.

There were all manner of dance moves, though most were borrowed from music videos. Other fans took the party to the parking lot where car owners tried to outdo each other with loud music. It was a carnivore. What Masaku stands for!

Alcohol and food was in plenty inside the Village and on the parking lot. A few enterprising fans made a kill by selling hard drinks from their car boots.
