Mode Men magazine in collaboration with Johnnie Walker recently held the fifth edition of the Men of the Year Awards and honoured 15 at Orient Hotel, Lekki, Lagos for their remarkable achievements. The event was spiced up with glitz and glamour with performances from Tuface Idibia, Kola Soul and Capital Femi.
Also in attendance were Dr. Newton Jibunoh, Udo Maryanne Okonjo as well as TV, radio, fashion and entertainment personalities.. Managing Director and Chief Executive, Guinness Nigeria Plc., Mr. Seni Adetu, said Johnnie Walker and Mode Men had a lot in common because of shared values they both recognize and celebrate. “Respect is shown to men who are committed to a cause and their achievements and celebration is something that is done to encourage them in their endeavours.”
Editor-in-Chief of the magazine and convener, Men of the Year Awards, Mr. Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, said recognition and celebration of such laudable efforts will always drive people to do more and aim for higher heights. General Manager, Diageo Brands Nigeria, Mr. Felix Enwemadu, said: “At Johnnie Walker, we celebrate the discerning, big thinkers, and the risk takers. We have saluted these distinguished men and the onus is on the rest of us to follow the Johnny Walker dictum.
Which is to keep walking and to keep striving because only the dedicated, relentless and daring ones become achievers who have broken new grounds and opened doors for others to walk through.” Guests were introduced to the newest two variants in the Johnnie Walker family: Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve – an indulgent and multi-layered blend, best enjoyed at luxurious and vibrant celebrations.
And Johnnie Walker Platinum Label – a contemporary and smoky blend with a rich, dark and intense flavor that rewards those who take the time to savor it. Both whiskies make a wonderful gift and will be available just in time for Christmas. Guests were treated to a taste of Johnnie Walker Blue Label – the grandest and most revered whisky in the Johnnie Walker family.
