The night kicked off with host Wyclef doing a tribute acappela to African nations and proceeded with performances that excited the crowd.
Trevor Nelson who hosted last year was no match for Wyclef who took the event to new heights. He challenged Akon to a ‘power tussle’ to do 25 pushups on stage which they did. He also challenged Akon to join him in stripping to boxers. He strips to his black Armani boxers and Akon to his white Calvin Klein boxers keeping the audience entertained.
