Road to MAMAs with Absolut Vodka, Cocktail party, Elegushi Beach, Lagos

I had to privilege recently of working with folks at Absolut Vodka.  At a cocktail party held at the popular Elegushi beach in Lekki, Lagos, drones of fans and connoisseurs alike showed up for an event meant to support the Road to the MAMAs (MTV Africa Music Awards) campaign.  The event delivered with the likes of Nigerian superstar Yemi Alade performing for the enthusiastic crowd her signature single "Johnny."

Gushing winner Feyikemi Afolabi is flanked by distinguished members of Absolut Vodka team.  L-R: Steven Onachwu, Brand Manager, Absolut Vodka, Akintayo Akinseloyin, Marketing Director, Sola Oke and Maria Martinez,  
It's amazing how in a jungle like Lagos, you'd find ultimate sophistication.  Amongst the crowd were Absolut Vodka's Managing Director and Brand Manager, Absolut Vodka, Akintayo Akinseloyin and Marketing Director, Sola Oke, fashion designers, photographers, media personalities.  Crop of folks here were having a good time having a beach party.  Dancers took center stage as the DJ spinned the latest in Nigerian Afro beats and hip hop.

MC and entertainer N6 (@n6oflife)  from 96.9 CoolFM got the crowd animated, moving the event along.  There were give-aways, such as an all-expense paid trip &VIP tickets to Durban, South Africa to be live at this years MAMAs.  One lucky winner—Feyikemi Afolabi, 25 year old native of Oyo State and sales representative of the 100% Bar couldn't believe her good fortune when her name was called by N6 out of a bunch papers rolled up and put in a drawing.  She gushes "I am so happy about this; I have never travelled out of Nigeria. Now I am not just travelling to South Africa, I would be present at the 2014 MAMAs and look forward to the meeting of top African stars. Life does not get any better than this.”  Four more prizes like this one stand to be claimed.
This latest effort is part of the 'Transform Today Award, by ABSOLUT’, program formed to empower young entrepreneurship, creativity and social experiences through ingenuity. For a list of nominees, click here.

I've throughly enjoyed working with absolute Vodka.  You can keep up with Absolut Vodka Nigeria on their Facebook Page for a chance at winning one of the remaining VIP tickets to the MAMAs, follow them on Twitter: @AbsolutVodkaNig.
