All is now set for the final phase of Hennessy Artistry 2011 VIP Night holding at Rehab Night Club in Lagos this weekend.
The initiative which has been talk of the town for several weeks has eventually planted itself firmly in the hearts of millions of music fans and entertainment enthusiasts across the country.
With a combination of different genres and styles, the globally celebrated musical platform pushes the envelope as far as experimental collaborations are concerned. Hennessy Artistry combines contemporary, hiphop and inspirational music from around the world presenting a platform for consumers to enjoy this fine art of blending while savoring the best possible cognac experience in the world.
As the team returns to Lagos this weekend for the final VIP Night, it is going to be a blend of fun, surprise and unlimited excitement. With an eclectic combination of pop, rap and R&B, the trio of Banky W, Tiwa Savage and eLDee will deliver the supplies and keep the crowd on their feet all night.
“It’s been so much fun touring Abuja and Port Harcourt. Lagos Island is going to be a blast, I can’t wait to see who’s going to be the winner of the Facebook competition”, Banky W says.
For the last time, one lucky Facebook fan will get to win a VIP Night-Out with the superstars at the VIP event and hang out with them at Rehab this Friday. Past winners include Bodunrin Oluwafemi and Kennedy Ihenacho who were both treated like superstars in Lagos and Abuja.
“I can’t wait for the final VIP party, touring with eLDee and Banky W has been fun. This is the final party, but this is not the end of the journey, wait till you see the video for “Toast To The Good Life” Tiwa Savage says.
The video for this year’s theme song, according to Hennessy’s Communications Manager Tokini Peterside, will be premiered in the presence of select guests in a matter of weeks.
Peterside also assures Lagos residents that “Several surprise acts will be performing at Rehab this weekend along with the lead acts. You just have to keep your fingers crossed”
In Abuja, Wizkid made a surprise entry on stage and got the crowd cheering. This leads to the question – Which surprise act will share the stage with Tiwa Savage, Banky W and eLDee in Lagos?
Like the previous VIP nights, fans will mingle with the stars – rocking all night to lavish beat and tunes from Nigeria’s biggest talents and DJs.
Since inception in 2006, Hennessy Artistry has been at the forefront of mixing and blending hip and inspirational music from around the world. Artists that have been involved with the music platform include Kanye West, Pharell Williams, Ne-Yo, Leona Lewis, LL Cool J and Fabulous.
Last weekend, the Hennessy Artistry train made a stop in Port Harcourt, and it was fun all the way as hit makers Waconzy and Banky W thrilled the crowd alongside upcoming acts Mr. Drill, Zealot and Lily Jeans at the Eddiez Night Club which played host to the headliners on 21 October, 2011.
The event also attracted Duncan Mighty who made a surprise cameo.
The VIP night will be a blast, I can assure you. Hennessy is a brand that we have been supporting for a while, we only just decided to make it official this year. The first Lagos event and the other city events were so much fun, I am guaranteeing you one thing for the Rehab VIP Night – An unforgettable night-out!” Eldee one of the headliners says.
Currently in its 5th edition, Hennessy Artistry is Nigeria’s most innovative musical platform. The series was first unveiled in Nigeria in 2007. Through the years, it has evolved from a cocktail-mixing contest between renowned bartenders to a battle of DJs and now a platform for experimental collaborations among multi-talented artists.
