The artistes were in celebratory mood with threats of humiliation on the field of play being thrown around. Soul Jah Love warned his sungura counterparts saying the Zim dancehall team was going to send sungura to the rural areas on Saturday. Zoey and Bev, who are among the medics were elated, pointing out that they were looking forward to treating injured players on the field of play.
