Nigeria’s comedian, Ayo Makun better known as AY, is not just a comedian but a business man with class and style as he sure needs returns from his investments but some people are yet to understand.
He does not force people to attend his shows which is the ‘AY Live’ annual event but many have taken it that he runs a charity organization as they keep asking for free tickets which he pays money to print.
As countdown begins for this year’s edition, the comedian is not happy with the amount of messages he keeps getting for free ticket but to make things easy for those in need of it, he has pointed out that he can only do that for someone that has evidence that he has helped his career since inception.
“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 let’s 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,” he wrote.
