Hennessy, the world’s number one cognac, hosted a birthday dinner for Nigerian Artist Mayorkun at the Oyster Bay Restaurant in Nairobi, Kenya. 

The event brought together thought leaders in the music space, friends of the house, and media for a networking and interaction experience with the artist. It also offered an exclusive opportunity for guests to experience the sophistication and luxury of Hennessy Cognac. 

Mayorkun is a multi-award-winning artist and one of the most exciting performers in Nigeria today. Hennessy has had a long history of celebrating cultural icons that push the limits of their potential.

Mayorkun’s willingness to push boundaries in music and his passion and energy has contributed to his partnership with Hennessy as one of Nigeria’s brand ambassadors.

With his recently released album, Back in Office, which featured the smash single “Holy Father,” he has quickly become a favorite of music fans worldwide, amassing over 100 million streams. 

Speaking about the tour, the Market Manager of Moet Hennessy Gboyega Ogunfuye noted that “music has always been part of Hennessy’s DNA, recognizing creative minds that blend rhythms that will never stop and never settle”.

“That is why we have a long history of supporting artistic creativity, and we will continue to provide a platform for artists, blending Music, talent, influences, and Cognac,” added Ogunfuye.
