It was 2 nights of music and fun in Lagos. Hennessy recently partnered with international jazz vocalist and songwriter Somi for her “The Gratitude” tour.

Day 1 and 2 kicked off with a cocktail reception with four Hennessy signature recipes while guests were served a specially paired 5 course meal by Chef Lalu. With her New York based band flown into Lagos, Somi belted out new songs from her new album. She was supported on stage by Ghanaian songstress Efya and rising act Ese Peters.

BN was on the scene at the event, check out the photos.

And just in case you haven’t heard Somi‘s outstanding singing, here’s a taste!

    yay! Somi’s music is amazinggg 🙂 oh and these pictures do NO JUSTICE for Somi’s beauty. She has amazingly beautiful glowing skin in person, you can kinda see it in this pics…but I think the photographer could have captured sme better shots. Infact for a lot of pics, the photographer didn’t get good shots. I’ve seen sme of these ppl in person and those pics above aren’t it at all…
