As the sun began to set on Johannesburg and the 2013 edition of the CAF Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday 10 February 2013, the closing ceremony paid a special tribute to the Mother Continent.

Soccer City in Soweto was awash with dazzling musical performances by African artists during the 40 minute spectacular which reflected the continent's urban and contemporary side. 

It featured a performance by South African superstar Yvonne Chaka Chaka, who was accompanied by 150 children from local townships and traditional dancers from Lesedi.

Following Chaka Chaka was Kenyan vocalist Muthoni, SA’s Thembisile Ntaka, Nigerian’s D’Banj, local musicians Zonke, Kelly Khumalo and Micasa.
