It is not easy celebrating 250 years birthday. Trust me, it’is not. I know how many Christmases i have celebrated. More so if i were to have mates in turkeys, they would have all long been eaten many decades ago.
It is even much more difficult for businesses to survive after their first year of operations, so it is with great respect that we align with a global brand that is celebrating their 250th anniversary; Hennessey.
The drink maker dedicated 250 hours of great activities towards marking this epochal celebration and it culminated with her annual Hennessey Artistry musical concert. The Hennessey Artistry, an innovative musical platform which was started globally in 2006 by Hennessey to, in their words, “celebrate the vibrant multiculturalism of different genres. It combines contemporary, hip and inspirational music around the world”.
This year’s concert was headlined by some of Nigeria’s finest musical talents; Praiz, Burna Boy and Vector.

Performances from Ycee, Tekno Miles, Kiss Daniel, Koker, Shina Peters, Jesse Jagz, Sugar Boy, Adekunle Gold, Sarz, Ice Prince, Naeto C, Praiz, Burna Boy, and Vector and two producer/D.Js- Chopstix and T.Y Mix were all electrifying.
But the smooth transition between Koker and Sir Shina Peters was mind-blowing. The new act, Koker’s song; ‘Do Something‘ sounds much like some evergreen songs from the legend, SSP but that transition was still eclectic.

Another performer who went beyond just performing was Jesse Jagz who displayed an intimidating mastery of playing of percussion instruments as he practically drummed to most of the songs he produced for other artistes before performing his own songs much to the delight of all.
It was a fun-filled night and as Hennessey preaches through her campaigns, drinking that night was responsibly done as what was served was light in alcohol content.
Oh, it was such a hitch-free event that the two fully equipped ambulances that were deployed for the night drove off in the early hours of Sunday morning without being needed.
We also salute the men of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority who were deployed to help with traffic outside the event venue.
Hennessey, you guys rock.
We wish you a happy 250th anniversary and many more years of goodness.
