History of the Event
Cecil Hammond founded Rhythm Unplugged in 2004 through his company Flytime Promotions. The entertainment event was created to promote Nigerian musicians and comedians at a time when the Nigerian music industry was only beginning to receive international attention.

Following the success of the first Rhythm Unplugged performance, Flytime Promotions announced that the concert would be held annually at a larger location to suit the concert’s growing fan base.
