Nigerian comedians, Ali Baba and Seyi Law on Sunday opened up on what they go through to get sponsorships for their comedy shows.
Ali Baba while explaining why VIP tickets are always expensive said it is so because of cost of planning the show, he added that the cost of planning a show overseas are cheaper.
Seyi Law on his part wrote on the cost and demands of hosting an event in the country without sponsorship drive up ticket pricing.
He wrote on Instagram, “Thanks @alibabagcfr for constantly trying to educate people about the efforts of entertainers and events management practitioners.
I can’t write the epistle needed to drive home this point. The cost and class demands of the events in Nigeria without sponsorship drive up ticket pricing. These and more are the reasons we are constantly grateful to media houses that oblige us their platforms for advertising. Now, AFCON is encroaching into that territory to frustrate our efforts.
What is the government doing to encourage these businesses that create 100 to 200 direct and indirect jobs per show? Make I leave the matter for now. I am looking for sponsors for my Abuja show abeg.”
