Hennessy Artistry unveils its 10th anniversary Limited Edition Bottle: A celebration of urban culture
Hennessy the number one cognac brand in the world, is set to release a limited edition bottle featuring a carafe decorated by the Nigerian urban artist known as Osa Seven.
A celebration of Nigeria’s rich diversity, this limited edition of Hennessy Very Special combines the artist’s vibrant personal aesthetic with the cultural values he and Hennessy share: a love of heritage, local craftsmanship and various forms of contemporary art.
“Hennessy is the brand leader of cognac, and that is what I try to be with my art,” Osa Seven observes. “It’s easy for me to vibe with the House, because it’s always pushed me to express myself differently.”
Hennessy Artistry has become an integral part of Nigeria’s social fabric – Creating iconic moments, exposing talent, and creating collaborations across various music genres via the Hennessy Artistry Cyphers, VS Class, Artistry Club tours and the Hennessy Artistry Finale Concert. The platform has showcased the best hip hop artists in the music industry and has successfully changed the narrative of rap music in Nigeria.
“Hennessy Artistry’s longevity and success is a testament to the strength of our devotion to strengthen and promote artistic content within the Nigerian creative space. It also signals our commitment to provide a platform that enables Nigerian creative entrepreneurs to bring the “Art of Blending” to life. Our 10th anniversary celebrations will definitely leave a lasting impression in the minds of our consumers” says Wole Awoleke - Brand Manager, Hennessy & Spirits, Moet Hennessy Nigeria.
