Johnnie, Jazz & Whisky (JJW) turned on the style last Saturday as musical songstress Asa and afrobeat maestro Femi Kuki held up the audience in a jaw scintillating fusion of music and flavours.
The event began with cameras clicking away at the ‘black carpet’, as live instrumentals ushered guests into the cocktail area where mixologists delighted with a full array of whisky cocktails. Guest mixologist, Berg, unravelled the mysteries of Johnnie Walker Black Label, showcasing ways that guests may more fully enjoy the smoky, creamy, tropical and fruity flavours of this unique blended whisky.
The music was out-of-this-world perfect. Beginning with performances by Efezino, Yimika & Chike, then the eureka moment came where award-winning Asa soon took the stage, performing her sweet melodies for 45 jaw-dropping minutes in a lead up to the high energy afro-magical performance of Femi Kuti. Femi Kuti’s main act was full-on electrifying.
Femi’s son joined his father on stage, and the duo embarked on an 8-minute ‘take-your-breath’ saxophone rendition that sprung a ‘wowed’ audience into a prolonged standing ovation.
The evening of glitz and glamour, style and flavours, was another night of triumph for Johnnie, Jazz & Whisky – a truly memorable experience. JJW is a unique fusion of the greatest live performers and the flavour filled expressions of Johnnie Walker Black Label.
