<p class="">Since 2009, 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 <strong>Hennessy Artistry Cyphers</strong>, <strong>VS Class</strong>, <strong>Artistry Club tours</strong> and the <strong>Hennessy Artistry Finale Concert.</strong></p>

<p class="">Last year nearly 2,000 rappers made entries during the Hennessy Artistry VS Class Online and Live auditions – which were held across key cities in Nigeria. From these entries BARRYLANE emerged victorious with his <strong>Kendrick Lamar</strong> “esque” delivery and flow. Since its first edition, which was won by renowned lyricist <strong>“Ice Prince Zamani”</strong>, the VS Class platform has served as a stepping stone for aspiring gifted rappers like ECLIPSE, the “Femcee” <strong>PHLOW</strong>, <strong>BLAQ-BONEZ</strong>, <strong>LIMERICK </strong>and <strong>VADER THE WILDCARD </strong>whilst delivering to Nigerians a display of lyrical ingenuity and prowess. Now in its 6<sup>th</sup> season, this year’s live auditions will be held in <strong>Benin, Port Harcourt and Lagos</strong> to discover the next best talent to hit Nigeria’s vibrant Hip hop scene.</p>

<p class="">The Hennessy Artistry Cypher has also played host to rap royalty in Nigeria with the likes of <strong>Vector, Reminisce, Falz, MI, Jesse Jags, Ill Bliss </strong>and <strong>Yung6ix, </strong>dropping bar after steaming bar to an eager audience. Watch out for your favorite MCs as they drop the “sickest” rhymes during this year’s Cypher – some of Nigeria’s best and brightest are featured on this year’s cypher list.</p>

<p class="">The Artistry story would be incomplete without the Hennessy Artistry Finale Concert. The Finale stage has played host to an endless list of Hennessy Artistry Headliners like <strong>Wizkid, Timaya, Falz, 2Baba, Dbanj, Burna Boy, Olamide, Sir Shina Peters, Wande Coal </strong>and many more.</p>

<p class=""><em>“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.

Our 10</em><sup><em>th</em></sup><em> anniversary celebrations will definitely leave a lasting impression in the minds of our consumers” says Wole Awoleke – Brand Manager, Hennessy &amp; Spirits, Moet Hennessy.</em></p>

<p class="">Who can forget in a hurry the Hennessy Artistry tracks that had Nigeria jumping from ; “<strong>Like a bottle</strong>” by the King of Afro-Juju; <strong>Sir Shina Peters</strong>, international recording artist; <strong>Nneka</strong>, <strong>MI, Bez</strong> and VS Class Alumni; <strong>Ice Prince</strong>, <strong>“Toast to the Good Life”</strong> by <strong>Eldee, Tiwa Savage</strong> and <strong>Banky W</strong>, <strong>Bartender</strong>” by <strong>MI &amp; Naeto C</strong>, “<strong>Dance Go</strong>” by <strong>Wizkid &amp; Tuface Idibia</strong>, “<strong>Raise Your Glasses</strong>” by <strong>D’banj</strong>, “<strong>No be Water</strong>” by <strong>Burna Boy &amp; Vector</strong> and finally “<strong>Live Life</strong>” featuring the electric trio of <strong>Olamide, Timaya &amp; Falz</strong>.
