CECIL HAMMOND'S WIFE TURN PRODUCER
Former Rhythm 93.7 On-Air Personality and wife of Cecil Hammond, high profile promoter and CEO of Flytime Entertainment, Keke, has taken after the foot steps of her beau. Unlike her hubby who is into promoting music and comedy, the mother of two is into drama and stage productions.
She made her debut a fortnight ago with the public presentation of Four Coloured Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When The Rainbow is Enuf.' At the MUSON.

Four Coloured Girls depicts the interconnected lives of seven women, exploring their stories and struggles as black women in America. The play has been performed on Broadway, adapted as a novel, television series, and most recently as the movie 'Four Coloured Girls' written, produced and directed by award winning producer/director Tyler Perry.
Adapted for the Nigerian audience, the play featured the all-star female cast of Joke Silva, Ireti Doyle, Matilda Obaseki, Marcy Dolapo Oni, Tiwa Savage, Reanne Weruche Opia, Olajumoke Ladi Bello and Omawumi. The Nigerian adaptation while remaining true to the original play was a poetic exploration of what it means to be an African woman living in the 21st century. It was produced by Keke Hammond.
With tickets going as high as N15k per seat, she is certainly set to redefine stage plays and performances.
