On Wednesday 30th August, cast of The Royal Hibiscus Hotel movie, led by sultry screen goddess and lead actress, Zainab Balogun, paid a courtesy visit to Guinness Nigeria in Lagos. The visit came ahead of the screening of this new movie at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.  The Royal Hibiscus Hotel movie is co-sponsored by Johnnie Walker.

With the visiting cast including class acts Rachel Oniga, Kemi Lala Akindoju, Toni Tones and Deyemi Okanlawon, Johnnie Walker treated the delegation to the Royal Hibiscus Cocktail, a special creation of Kelvin Oduntan, World Class Nigeria’s champion bartender.  The cocktail masterpiece is a fine blend of zobo leaves, sweet pineapples and Johnnie Walker Gold Reserve, and is named in honour of the ground breaking movie from the stables of Ebonylife TV.

Johnnie Walker has invested in two of the biggest Nigerian Films of all time. The brand seeks to take its commitment a step further by supporting the next generation and providing them with an opportunity to share their talents with the rest of the world.

Speaking during the courtesy call, Adenike Adebola, Marketing Director, Guinness Nigeria, explained that “Johnnie Walker is committed to supporting the emergence of ground breaking Nigerian creators on the world stage.  After all, walking and surviving tight ropes is what we do.  We are therefore committed to walking the movie making tightrope with the next generation of Nigerian storytellers.

To be clear, we will not stop until our stories find a ready audience on the global stage – and there can be no better medium for achieving this than through the incredible young talent that populate the Nigerian film industry.”

The Royal Hibiscus Hotel will be screened at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival on 9th September.
