The Guinness 250 launch held on Saturday the 18th could be described in one word ….Awesome,
it was indeed an outing that was well put together and I dare say that every one who turned out for the black carpet was looking extra great, and I mean everyone,
Something quite noticeable was the fact that almost everyone present complied to the dress-code of the evening and what an evening it turned out to be
The Black carpet was invaded by a host of paparazzi from top media channels and while their camera’s greeted the invitees and celebrities alike, some were invited for interviews while others enjoyed the company of friend and Guinness cocktail, before proceeding upstairs for the event proper.
The event itself lived up to and surpassed a lot of my expectations, Frank Edoho steered proceedings brilliantly, Waje brought new melody to the National anthem, Dare-art Alade put up a sterling Performance and Omawumi stunned the guests.
Guinness announced a National Consumer Promotion to celebrate 250 years and reward loyal consumers and asked that we all be in expectation of September 24th as Nigeria raise their glasses and the worldwide celebration of Arthur Guinness day” (I wonder what they’ll do next!)
And the highpoint of the night, wait for this- was the Unveil of Jay-Jay Okocha as the new Guinness ambassador, and very fitting too…. I think
Then it was capped with knock-out performances by Banky W, MI and DJ Jimmy-Jatt held down at the Volar Bar, and whatsmore! the Drinks were all on Guinness
So I say a big thumbs up to Guinness at 250 and the wonderful team for putting together such an impressive outing, we’ll be on the look out come September 24th and Reach For Greatness as they said in Guinness.
