It was an unforgettable evening last Saturday with critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, and four-time Grammy Award nominee, Femi Kuti, son of late Afro-beat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, as he thrilled the audience with a live performance of his seventh studio album, One People One World at the prestigious Sheraton Lagos Hotel.
During the show, music lovers, Afro beat enthusiasts and members of Marriott International’s award-winning loyalty programs, Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards, and Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG), were regaled and wowed with a pulsating evening curated by the hotel in partnership with media and entertainment company Chocolate City Group.
Marriott International’s loyalty program members redeemed their points for a highly elevated front row viewing experience and exclusive VIP access to a once in a lifetime experience which included a meet and greet with the Afro beat maestro, complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres as well as a one-night stay in the Sheraton Club Room at the Sheraton Lagos Hotel.
Members also enjoyed a delightful breakfast, engaging conversations and a photo opportunity with the living legend.
