The long-awaited meeting between rappers and streamers/influencers has now taken place!
This is an opportunity to take stock of the event, organized in aid of the Abbé Pierre Foundation, and of which Project X Paris was honored to be a partner.
A crazy crowd, a crazy show on and off the pitch, a great atmosphere: a look back at a perfect Sunday!
A big success
Let's get straight to the heart of the matter: the Planète Rap Rappeurs vs Influenceurs match was a huge success.
The exceptional match attracted over 300,000 live viewers on Twitch, Skyrock and KMS!
Twitch audience scores similar to GP Explorer or the France vs Spain Streamer match organized by Amine earlier in the year. As usual, we're coming on strong!
As this kind of event only makes sense if it's massively followed, we'd like to thank the many people who kept the chat and the event alive on the networks and on Twitch.
And it wasn't just on the networks that he was followed, but also on YouTube, where more than 130,000 people watched the replay on Skyrock's YouTube channel.
As for the stands at the FC93 stadium in Bobigny, they were packed to the rafters! Over 1,500 people turned out to support the event, and the players, who had to contend with very hot weather on Sunday. It was thanks to the fervor in the stands that the players were able to put on a show during the match, and a great one it was!
The big show on and off the pitch
This was the main question surrounding the event: what will be the real level of the participants? Will they put on a great match? No professional athletes in the line-up, just a few rappers who, as we all know, are not averse to partying during showcases. And as Marco Verratti has shown us over the last 10 years, partying is bad for your cardio!
But the players and the show were there on June 11, and the score was already a resounding 8-8. A lot of goals, but also a lot of great moves. First among the streamers, with Boucif in fine form, providing the decisive pass for Vargas's opener. But also among the rappers, with Bendo Z and Favé very lively and gifted in the opposition half, and Kerchak also in fine form. Hatik also put on a great show, making everyone laugh with his chicha at half-time. We also saw a brace from ISK, and Kerchak who played the whole match wearing his balaclava, and even scored!
On the pitch, the show was guaranteed. And off the pitch, things were just as lively! Thanks in no small part to the fans, who turned out in force to add to the atmosphere in the stands. But also thanks to Fred Musa and all those who commented on the game in a way that was both passionate and full of humour. They created a great atmosphere, while retaining the offbeat, whimsical feel that we appreciate so much. We'd also like to thank Kodes, who not only kept goal for the rappers' team (a difficult task given the disorganized state of the defense), but also put on a big show at half-time, with Rapi Sati and Coull B. A high-energy mini-showcase at half-time, in front of a delighted audience.
Of course, we'd also like to thank all the dancers, who were also on fire, as well as the prestigious guests who came to watch the match, including Rim'K, Sefyu and Heuss L'Enfoiré, who came to coach his colleagues from the bench, like a Pep Guardiola of the 92.
Project X Paris in the front row
So we had a great time sharing and enjoying ourselves in Bobigny on Sunday afternoon, with a great show.
At PXP, we're extremely pleased to have been able to take part in such a major event, especially as it was all for a good cause, to fight against poor housing thanks to the funds raised for the Abbé Pierre Association.
All the more so as, for this match, we did more than just collaborate, by being a true first-rate partner for the match and all that surrounded it.
Our brand was present on all the shirts of both teams, for a start, as an official sponsor. We also supplied the dancers with outfits for their show, and distributed dozens of bobs, bags and goodies in the stands during the match. Even the great Fred Musa got in on the act, dressing in PXP too, with a plain black short-sleeved shirt with pocket. PXP shirts were also in vogue that day, both with the dancers and Rapi Sati during his half-time show.
We enjoyed the atmosphere so much that we're already looking forward to next year's event, if there is one. Given the current economic situation, it's a safe bet that the Abbé Pierre Foundation will still need a helping hand in a year's time, and we'll be delighted to be there. Taking part in these kinds of big, popular events, where thousands of people get together with dancers, influencers and rappers, is exactly the image we want to give Project X Paris. Our "feel good" side is fully assumed, and we're delighted to have been able to convey these values of sharing and good humor in front of so many people: 1500 in the stands, plus the 300,000 on Twitch, you're simply incredible.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the PXP team who were on hand to ensure the smooth running of this not-to-be-missed event.
A big thank you to everyone, and see you next year!
