Under clear skies and moderate temperature at around 1:19am Shaggy got a surprise! As the Norwegian Pearl get closer to its destination Diva Nikki Z of WZMX Hot 937 entered his stage with a birthday cake and was joined by the very huge crowd in singing, by now a very surprised Shaggy, happy birthday [awe].  

The proceedings thereafter was simply turn up!
