All The Fun We’ve Had With Johnnie Walker This Year

In between working or studying and whatever you do to make ends meet, taking a break is super important. When you combine fun and relaxation, what you get is a great party — the break everyone needs.

Do you know what made 2019 relaxing and fun for us? Attending some of the best parties hosted by Johnnie Walker. You might think, “It’s just a party, what’s the big deal?” But it’s never just a party — certainly not when Johnnie Walker is  involved. Let’s give you a quick example of what we’re talking about, so you have a good idea and know not to ever miss a JW party we invite you to.

What Did We Do?

Short answer? Got Our Groove On With Johnnie Walker At Capital Block Party. 

Who doesn’t love a good turn up? Nobody. Not us at least. That’s why we not only got our groove back, but we got it on with Johnnie Walker at Capital Block Party. It was a lot of fun if you ask me. From quality Johnnie Walker cocktails to music performed by our faves, we couldn’t get enough. 

Capital Block Party held at the BMT Gardens in Abuja and was sponsored by Johnnie Walker. Here’s a quick recap:

Lagos vs Abuja

I think the most interesting part of this party outside of the great vibe, cocktails, and music, was the dance-off between Lagos party lovers and Abuja party lovers. Everyone knows how Lagos and Abuja people like to bicker at each other when it comes to everything and anything, so, Johnnie Walker decided to put this to test in the party context — “Who parties better, Lagos or Abuja?”

To bring this argument to life, Johnnie Walker treated 10 Lagosians to a trip of a lifetime by flying them in to party with the Abuja crew.

Turns out at the end of the day that it didn’t matter. Regardless of the location, a Johnnie Walker party is always lit irrespective of where the people partying are from. You heard?

Under the sun and in the rain?

You know how the NYSC anthem goes “under the sun and in the rain”? Well, this Johnnie Walker party was ultimate proof that Nigerians know how to get it down despite the weather. The turnout was mad. Get this: NO ONE CARED THAT IT WAS RAINING. We were having so much fun, it didn’t matter. Over 1500 guests just having the time of their life in a party is a total vibe that we are here for. 

Cocktails!

Once you have a Johnnie Walker cocktail, there’s no turning back. Johnnie Walker showed us they meant business with the affordable yet quality cocktails. 

We couldn’t get enough; I mean who could ever say no to sweet and spunky drinks especially when they look so good? Certainly not us.

Music

It was the perfect blend of artistes giving us the best sounds to show off our dancing skills: From Falz to Small Doctor to DRB, Ajebutter, and so much more, we were star struck.  

Apart from having Bollylomo as the electrifying host of the party, there were some amazing new musical acts that we got introduced to. Johnnie Walker doesn’t only have good cocktail taste, they have good music taste. We stan.

Dance Dance Galore

In the middle of all the fun, games and dancing, a dance competition began. It was spearheaded by Poco Lee and Picture Kodak representing the Lagos crew against some of Abuja’s best dancers. There was zanku, splitting, shoki and every dance you can mention.

What’s Next?
