Hammond started organising concerts and promoting artists over 12 years
ago and under his management. Flytime has hosted some of the most
successful live entertainment events in Nigeria, working with both local

Pepsi
Rhythm Unplugged, which is in its 12th year, is West Africa’s most
popular concert. The event which held on Friday, December 23 had
performances from P-Square, Wizkid, Davido, Olamide, Falz, Omawumi and
many others. It was hosted by Bovi and produced by Cobhams.
Cobhams
showed his masterful touch in the sonic setup and interpretation of
sounds by the artistes, as every star came up with a tailored
performance that matched their strengths, and minimised all of their
weaknesses. Music came from the combination of a DJ and a full live
band, with backup singers and more.


 

Nigeria’s
finest, Wizkid, has been all over the international music scene this
year. A song with Drake, MTV awards wins, various collaborations and a
Grammy nomination is the summary of his year, before medical advice from
his doctors made him cancel all of his holiday concerts.

But
he defied his doctors’ orders to abstain from performing, as he took to
the stage, payed respect to Cecil Hammond, the organiser of the
concert, before diving into a set that contained a selected number of
his hit songs. He was backed by collaborator DJ Xclusive, who cued in ‘Jeje’, ‘The Matter’, ‘Jaiye Jaiye’, ‘Caro’, ‘In my bed’, and many more.


 

Psquare
also played  a set where they dug deep into the past to give a medley
of their biggest hits, while taking time to scream, “Psquare is back”.
Peter Okoye was backed by dancing from Don Flex and crew, while Paul led
the singing.

Other
DJs who performed on the night include DJ Cuppy, the daughter of
billionaire Femi Otedola. Otedola was a honoured guest, who sat front
row and watched his daughter perform. He later hit the stage to present
the Flytime Appreciation awards to Basketmouth, for his service to the
concert and friends. The comedian broke down in tears as he accepted the
recognition with thanksgiving.
