Here’s What You Missed At The Glenfiddich Experimental Maverick Night, Lagos.

October 21, 2019

Name us a better trio than music, people and whisky, we’ll wait.

Just like we thought, nothing beats the combination. Well nothing, unless you take the music and whisky a step further like Glenfiddich did with its Experimental Maverick Night that held in Lagos featuring music mavericks like Femi Kuti, Flavour, Bez and The Compozers. The event held at The Balmoral Convention Centre, Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos.

We cannot begin to explain how great the night went, but we’re going to try. Here’s a little re-cap of some of our favourite moments from the Glenfiddich Mavericks Experimental Night:

But first the guests.

When we say everyone came correct to witness the night’s performances! Now speaking of those performances:

1. Femi Kuti’s electrifying performance.

If for any reason, you may have been doubting Femi Kuti’s legendary, status, his performance at the night was enough to shut any naysayers up. Even better, his son Made who is a part of the maverick’s band – The Positive Force performed on stage with daddy. We love!

2. Flavour’s unmissable flavour!

Watching Flavour perform live is one thing, watching Flavour perform live with the magic of Glenfiddich’s whisky in the mix is a whole other ball game. Did anyone say fun raised to power 10?

3. OMG, who caught Lady Donli’s performance?

We’re going to say this now for everyone to see, Lady Donli is in a league of her own when it comes to music and if that doesn’t embody the spirit of a maverick, we don’t know what does. Glenfiddich opened eye when she was included to the line-up. Just look at this performance.

4. One word: Bez!

We’re still recovering from the magic that was Bez’s performance at the Glenfiddich Experimental Maverick Night. Just look at all that talent wrapped in a poncho and sunglasses. Two shots of whisky for how great that performance was.

5. The shutdown courtesy Jesse Jagz!

Rap legend, sibling extraordinaire and all-round maverick – Jesse Jagz brought the heat and then some for the night’s performance. Don’t take out word for it, here’s a little peek for you.

6. The Compozers.

As if the night’s events weren’t lit enough, The Compozers decided a little trip down memory lane to the early aughts was just what the perfect chaser to their Glenfiddich whisky, and they were absolutely right!

Whose performance would you absolutely have loved to witness at the Glenfiddich Experimental Maverick Night?
