Rocking Lagos with Wale, M.I, Wizkid others
Last Saturday, at a luxurious mansion in the heart of Lagos, the exceptional spirits, world-class menus, perfectly curated music and three hosts at the top of their craft, added up to the best party Lagos has experienced in recent times.

There was also sampling specially, curated cocktails such as the Curious Julep.
Evoking the spirit of curiosity, guests were taken on an immersive brand experience through the themed rooms set over four floors, which gave guests a glimpse into the world of the night’s hosts. The ‘Wale’ bed room, which featured video games, basketball memorabilia and items from the Rapper’s collection, whilst M. I’s room featured a recording booth where guests could become musicians for the night and lay down their tracks.
Guests were treated to a specially curated music experience as DJ Obi and Crowd Kontroller, two of the Country’s finest DJ’s took to the decks. Elevating the music experience was a special performance by Wale who took to the stage to perform some of his biggest tracks.
