The “Pepsi Lituation Experience” gets Outline
Nigeria – On a night filled with so much fun, ceremony, all underscored by an explosion of powerful music, Pepsi unveiled four of Nigeria’s foremost DJs as their Ambassadors. The quartet of DJ Obi, DJ Cuppy, DJ Spinall and DJ Xclusive, considered to be A-list DJs rocking the Nigerian entertainment industry, brought their A-games to what may be termed the Lituation experience.
Artists such as Tekno, WizKid, Tiwa Savage, among others, came to perform with them on their set. There was also a special appearance onstage by the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) Season 3 contestants.
Cytech World Communication was the tech company contracted to make this entire night happen. They supplied stage, lighting and audio, with the show set-up of two stages at each end of the venue.
On one side was the Main Stage for all the performances and at the other end, basically at the back of the venue, was the second stage which featured a 3D screen, used mainly for the DJ main intros.
The audio set-up on the main stage PA included 12 Outline GTO C-12 (six per side) with ten Outline DBS 18-2 Subs (five per side) plus two Outline Doppia II 9075 (one each side), which were front fills for the audience next to the stage ramp.
For the delay speakers from the main stage there were four Outline GTO C-12 per side over two Outline Lab 21 to get the height necessary for complete coverage.
Onstage, the 4 DJs all pre-set on a long DJ table to ensure there was good even coverage for their monitoring. To achieve this, Cytech used two Outline Doppia II 9075 aside over two Subtech 218 per side, controlled from the booth, with the DJs’ controllers routed from FOH to allow control on the entire mix.
For the Stage B set-up, there were four Outline GTO C-12 per side over three Outline DBS 18-2 Subs to get an excellent elevation. The plan was to surprise the audience and have them focused on Stage B, but when the intro was played the audience would turn 180 degrees to see and focus on Stage A at the other end of the venue. The key thing was to have a big enough PA to take the audience’s attention to Stage B at the outset.
