Comedian, AY gives ‘conditions’ to get free tickets for his show
By Rita Chioma
Top Nigerian comedian, AY Makun, whose annual show is coming up in few days time has stated the conditions for getting a free ticket, to those, who are clamouring for one.
The proud father of one is obviously tired of friends and colleagues harassing him for free tickets, thus he poured out his heart via Instagram.
He wrote: ” It’s sad that some people around you still don’t see showbiz as an investment directed towards any form of returns. The tickets you want to sell are mistaken for INVITES. They even call you with all the confidence in the world saying “Ay how come i am yet to get my invite to your show?” lol
Anyways lets make it easy for each other in order to have a successful show this Sunday. So those of you calling me to ask for free tickets to AY Live, please visit any of our ticket outlets with your ID card and a copy of an Essay on “How I helped AY’s Career over the years” to get your tickets. Don’t forget to show them a flyer of me on it as a proof that you have a personal relationship with me. This is also not forgetting those who are entitled to some complimentary tickets with a MAJOR preference of seating on the premium tables, kindly come with extra 9 friends each to make it a complete table. It would be a good time to let them know how you paid for the hall, accommodation, performing artistes, publicity, coverage and general production logistics, including my daughter’s last school fees.”
Some of his colleagues in the comedy industry are commending him for speaking out on the issue which has been bugging them all.
