Love & Grey Goose! Premium Vodka hosts an intimate Valentine’s Soiree in Lagos – Exclusive Photos



On Valentine’s day, a private party organised by premium vodka – Grey Goose took place in Lagos. The aim of the event was to celebrate the season of love with great food and Grey Goose Cocktails. The event which was the second of its kind was a fun filled and exciting one as Grey Goose Ambassador – Richard Irwin was at the event to create and mix special “love cocktails”.

The event which was hosted by Uti Nwachukwu and Lebanese singer – Lamar , saw attendees arrive in grand style. As couples arrived, the ladies were handed a white rose while their partners were decorated with Grey goose pins. There were lots of fun games such as “how well do you know your partner” for lovers and a special Grey Goose game where three guests – a lady and two gentlemen were each asked to mix and name cocktails and the winner – which turned out to be the lady,won a Magnum Swarovski crystal embellished bottle of Grey Goose vodka.

After the games, it was time to munch on the scrumptious delicacies available. While attendees were having their meal, they were entertained by two dancers who wowed with their salsa performance from start to finish. Soon after, all guests went downstairs for dessert where they also experimented with the premium vodka, mixing it with their own cocktails.

      Uti is doing well for himself. Getting endorsement deals and all. That is how you do it.
      I don’t like how he looks. I wish he did not wear that bow tie because he looks like he has no neck. And the blazer is a little bit too tight. Anyway, whatever.

      excuse u? what is wrong with ankara

    • Hosea

      February 22, 2012 at 3:53 am

      Missy, what do you expect from someone who says the food is “tomatocious” and that the guests look “matured”? May God help us all.

      February 22, 2012 at 12:04 pm

      Missy & Hosea, use ur glasses. The comment are not in volumes cos there is nothing to complain about. like i said they had fun without exposing their private regions. u get what am saying?

    • Hosea

      February 22, 2012 at 11:06 pm

      Glasses? I don’t wear glasses. Sorry!
      The issue is not people “exposing their private regions” but the fact that you categorized Ankara as classless. So none African fabrics are classy? Will you consider Ankara classy if I told you Burberry made a collection out of it? I cannot believe that statement will even come from someone. Most of the guests in attendance are older so you will most likely not see people showing a lot of skin. Now, if the event was open to everybody and not intimate, and people were decently dressed then some aspects of your argument would make sense.

    How intimate is a table that long, boarding-school style?

    PS. The hostesses were best dressed. Was hoping the ladies would make more effort, it being Val’s and all. 🙁

    I’m proud of Uti. Who would have thought he’d still be relevant almost 2 years after winning BBA. Uti if u’r reading this, ignore the negatives and focus on the positives as you always do coz you inspire some of us. God bless!
