Moët & Chandon celebrated this year’s Moët Grand Day on Friday by uniting stars across the African continent on Champagne Day under the theme ‘Toast to Togetherness’.

After during a challenging year, the 2020 Moët Grand Day was a reminder to champagne fans across Africa to celebrate even the smallest victories and achievement.

This grand toast was led by the region’s stars chosen and admired for their unique contributions to their countries and pride in Africa, including musicians, moguls, mavens and mentors who received personalised Moët & Chandon, hand-delivered along with gold glasses.

“Moët Grand Day has been celebrated worldwide since 2016, with glamorous large-scale experiences,” said Pascal Asin, ​Managing Director Moët Hennessy Africa and Middle East.

“With sensitivity to the current time, our hope with this year’s Moët Grand Day ‘Toast to Togetherness’ was to celebrate the talent and promise that exists across this magnificent continent, with more intimate experiences filled with the same joie de vivre. And to offer those who proudly fly the African flag, a moment to pause, and toast to moments and milestones worth celebrating.”

Guests celebrated Moēt Grand Day at intimate gatherings with stylish soirées at home, toasting to sunsets or dining al fresco with friends while dressed in dazzling gold and all raised their glasses in celebration at exactly 17:43 as they watched the sun set.

Stars from Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Cameroon, DR Congo and Ivory Coast all joined in the evening celebrations led by actresses Catherine Kamau and Foi Wambui as well as African Elite PR CEO Lucia Musau from Kenya and South African tv personality Boity Thulo and entrepreneur Maps Maponyane.
