Juary Soares equaliser saw them hold hosts Gabon to a 1-1 draw in Saturday's opening game.
Soares headed home for the tournament debutants in the 90th minute to cancel out Gabonese poster boy Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's opener in the Group A game at the Stade de l'Amitie in capital Libreville.
Before the match, Aubameyang was pictured with Nigerian Hip-pop star musician Davido who performed on stage at the grand opening of the tournament.
In the other Group A game, Burkina Faso also came from behind to hold Cameroon to a 1-1 draw in Libreville.
