The evening started with a Scotch tasting session by connoisseur and Chivas brand ambassador Nelson Asika. Following that, was a popular dance from the 1920s, the Charleston, performed by a dance group, Baillamos. The group also performed the Argentine Tango and the Quick step. Other performances included a soloist; Nene, who gave show stopping performances with her rendition of popular songstress Jennifer Houston’s ‘ I’m not leaving without you’ and other hit songs. Let’s not forget the harmonizing voices from Neon and poetry recitation by Tope Sadiq honoring the Chivas top 100 Men in Nigeria.
General Manager of Intercontinental hotel, Didier Coeln, expressed his gratitude to Chivas as their first client and also for trusting the management enough to host an event on day 2 of the hotels’ opening.
Chivas is a product of unique origin, a proud lineage of scotch whisky makers and more than two centuries worth of history since the year 1840. This brand of scotch which is produced by the Chivas brothers and owned by Pernod Ricard, has won numerous gold medal awards. This highly sought after Scotch was an immediate success since its introduction to the market and has been a long-time favourite among real Scotch connoisseurs as well as members of the well to do stratum of the society. Chivas can be found only in the hands of the upper echelon
Chivas congratulates the Top 100 men and we say continue to Live with Chivalry.
