International performer Ne-Yo officially launched Malibu RED in Ireland – the drink that combines the smooth coconut flavour of Malibu rum with a fiery Mexican Tequila – with a show stopping performance at an exclusive launch party at The Wright Venue, Dublin.

Highlights on the night included performances by fire-breathers, aerial acrobats, stilt walkers and hoop dancers, culminating in a spectacular live performance from the acclaimed Grammy Award winner himself.  Guests were treated to an intimate performance which included some of Ne-Yo’s greatest hits including Closer, Let Me Love You, Burning Up and Because of You.

Among those at the launch were Deric Hartigan of 3e, Lisa Flanagan, fmi Emma Waldron, fashion blogger Rosemary McCabe and model Faith Barnett.  A few lucky guests even got to hang-out with Ne-Yo backstage following his performance, a red letter opportunity for sure.
