The Halftime Show Featured Montell Jordan, Monie Love, and Yo-Yo

EAST POINT, Ga., April 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — As the team entered their final full week of regular season games at Scotiabank Arena, the Toronto Raptors squared off with the Indiana Pacers on April 9, 2024. Adding to what was already a high-energy performance, the Raptors vs Pacers halftime show was nothing short of a who’s who of hip-hop royalty presented by the East Point Convention and Visitors Bureau.

From the opening seconds, it looked like viewers were in for a treat for a 90’s classic serenade – London heartthrob Monie Love, known for being in the middle, took center stage during the first official time out, bringing a high-energy performance of “It’s a Shame” to set the stage for what was yet to come. 

Summer anthem hitman Montell Jordan and the one not to be played with, Ms. Yo-Yo herself, brought electrifying performances during halftime of “This Is How We Do It” and “You Can’t Play with My Yo-Yo.” And if that wasn’t enough of a throwback surprise, fans also enjoyed a duet of “Ladies First” from Monie Love and Yo-Yo that had them on their feet.

Celebrity influencers representing the East Point brand were TLC 90 Day Fiancé cast members Shaeeda and Bilal. They wore East Point branded jerseys that had the crowd in awe as they engaged in excited conversations. Joining them was Canada’s own television personality, Auntie Jillian, who also serves as a brand Ambassador for East Point.
