What do you know about The Hennessy Artistry? What do you know as the main message or the theme that surrounds the Hennessy Artistry? The Hennessy Artistry for 2010, what was the whole idea behind it?
Hennessy Artistry was launched in 2006. Hennessy Artistry is organized in many countries around the world such as the US, many islands in the Caribbean, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Africa and in Nigeria since 2007.
Up until 2009, the main message has been ‘‘the art of mixing’’ which changed to “the art of blending’’ from 2009 to present.
In Nigeria since 2007, each year has had different activities in form of competitions which lead up to a gran finale or the winning of a prize.
2007: A cocktail-mixing competition between bartenders, took place in nightclubs
2008: Battle of the DJs, competition took place in nightclubs. DJ Rexy won at the Grand Finale.
2009: 5 up and coming contemporary acts, each backed by a celebrity producer, competed in night clubs. Ice Prince won at the Grand Finale with Kemi Adetiba, Andre Blaze and Nateo C as the judges.
2010: A collaboration track and music video featuring 2 up and coming acts, 2 hot acts and 1 legend, produced by Kas (“Fi mi le”)
