When we thought we have had it all, Controversial Lagos Based Imo Blogger and Writer, Kisha has dished out a strong warning to her statesmen and Entertainers back home in regards to the AYlive set to hold in Owerri today. Read her message below…
As the AY Live Train hits the beautiful City of Owerri today 29th of December 2018, alot of things Comes to mind. Yes, the event has always been Outstanding one with Glitz and Glamour fused with Rib cracking Comedy, Music, Drama and a dose of creativity from the multiple Award winning Comedian AY and a host of his guest performances. AsideWhat less do you expect from a veteran, a standup comedian who has been in the game all his life?
Of course our AY doesn’t fall short in his craft but in recent times, we have discovered that he unapologetically does fall short in this one thing which he ought not to, which is “Paying Indigenous Acts” which according to him, are still ‘Upcoming‘ and due to that, does not deserve to be appreciated and it grieves my heart.
The night was a long one yet the Indigent Musicians and Comedians tagged ‘Upcoming‘ graced our Ears and Cheeks with unpirated rib cracking jokes that can only be cooked straight from The Teeming Mind of an ambitious Heart while the acclaimed Popular folks managed to arrive midway to the show. With their over pirated crafts, they mounted the stage simultaneously dishing out their boring, uninteresting and annoying performances. No doubt, One can count a handful of performances from this acclaimed Famous acts that could measure up to Our already Underrated Artistes now tagged “Upcoming” just Because they chose to stay in ‘Imo’ their State of birth while in pursuit of a better career in their chosen profession.
Oh how can I forget? As a Journalist and a gossip lover, The previously held Edition was one hell of an event I wouldn’t forget in a hurry due to the buzzing calls that almost crashed my phone. I woke up to several reports of how our Entertainers were not only used and dumped but cajoled by an outsider. Despite claims of using AYlive as a platform to showcase & project the said upcoming Entertainers, it still baffles me up till this moment, why no Imo Based act appeared on the Events Review on HipTv and Every other Entertainment Platform and to crown it all, even the Disc jockey, DJ Packy, who happened to be one of Otown’s Finest and a Headliner of The Highly Anticipated #AYLive In Owerri 2017, As expensive as a Turntable is, had to go as far as buying A new one and other equipments, including printing A Banner to project his Fast Rising brand, never thought it twice to negotiate once contacted. He even used his own vehicle in conveying Most of the Guest and other Equipments only for his hope of getting enough monetary Reward to be thrashed at the dawn of the event.
What more can be said? What more can be given to an ordinary performer if someone that gave this much wasn’t even recognised nor a din payed as compensation?
Hopefully, you wouldn’t be asked to pay to even perform this time…Lmao 😂
Let me hold my peace and drop my ink here but hey, ‘don’t say I didn’t warn you all.
Remember,’ Once beaten they say, twice shy’ therefore I urge you to Expect The Good, The Bad And The Ugly because either way, I’ll still be here to pick this dramatic pen loaded with epistles again.
Have an Ambitious 2019. Cheers
