Al Ahli Holding Group’s (AAHG) newly formed subsidiary, 117 Live successfully launched itself last night, with a ‘bombastic’ performance from world renowned reggae fusion artist Shaggy, who lit up the stage at 12th edition of The Dubai International Film Festival’s official closing ceremony at Zero Gravity.

The performance comes just two weeks after the official announcement by AAHG that Thomas Ovesen would be heading up their latest venture; tying into its already strong portfolio of new age media, including theAudience, Comicave, Universal Events (Asia Pop Comicon) and ReThink.

“Supporting the fantastic Dubai International Film Festival and presenting Shaggy live in concert at the Closing Ceremony was a great honour for 117Live and our sister company theAudience” says Thomas Ovesen CEO 117Live “as with our other Al Ahli Group pop culture and entertainment divisions 117Live and theAudience is all about adding value to both talents and audience, being part of great entertainment experiences and this event was just that – bombastic if not outright fantastic!”

117 Live, the international live events, talent and venue management company and theAudience, one of the world’s largest multi-channel publishers of social and digital content were the official sponsors of Shaggy at DIFF.
