Key highlights from the event include a skin talk session with the popular aesthetician, Dr. Bruce from @Skinetics, a food plating competition hosted by the head Chef of Wine Lab, Chef Treasure at wine lab. The winner of the competition was awarded a plaque and was presented by Maria Martinez.
The food and whisky pairing of the evening was exceptional. This was even more exciting because The Macallan Estate mini launch was done at the event. This gave the guests the exclusive opportunity to be the first group of people to ever taste The Macallan Estate in Nigeria.
An amazing presentation was beautifully delivered by ex-beauty queen, Omowunmi Akinnifesi as she spoke about The Macallan alpha female and feminine archetypes. She also led other ladies as they identified themselves with The Macallan brand by reading their alpha female brand message.
The evening was packed with several fun activities including live paintings, contests, etc. A magician was present to show a few tricks to excite the ladies.
A few men were also around to enjoy the company of the ladies. One of them is the exceptional Nigerian tailor, Mai Atafo, Sam Ajiboye, NBC’s sales director, among others.
