“They never see me coming” Asake’s December concert ticket fee causes uproar
Asake, who is currently riding the crest of the current wave in Nigeria’s music industry, has caused some consternation on Twitter after the publication of the ticket pricing for his upcoming show in Lagos during the month of December.
The price of the standing ticket to the performance, which will take place on December 22 at the Eko Convention Center in Lagos State, is N70,000. This would allow the purchaser to enter the arena and maintain a standing position during the duration of the event.
According to the information that Kemi Filani has obtained, the price of a ticket to Asake’s next December concert, which is going to be called the “Mr. Money With Vibe Feat,” ranges from N70,000 for the normal category all the way up to N10 million for the VVIP category.
Tickets can be purchased for N4 million, N8 million, or N10 million, with the latter being the most expensive option for attending the VVIP session at the show.
Since then, tickets for the event have been made available for purchase; however, the high prices that have been charged for different areas of the venue for the concert have drawn the attention of a large number of internet users.
Asake’s concert ticket fee causes uproar
Fans are extremely outraged and have begun to publicly criticize him on Twitter. We have no doubt that Asake was completely blindsided by this development. The following are some of the responses received:
An individual by the name of Dr.Jy wrote: “If I stand to worship God for free, then I will pay $70,000 to stand and watch you sing.” I was wondering what size of rubber you smoked. 10, 25 or 50litres?’
Paint Artist is quoted as saying, “Everyone is criticizing the price to watch a show!! You people aren’t even trying to see the silver lining here! The most straightforward method of laundering money!!! Awake, every one!!’
In a message that he sent out, Joshua Aroke said, “Except if you guys are trying to make this easy publicity and then review the price but if na final price then.” @asakemusik you are too proud, but it is not your fault; the people who want to pay seventy thousand dollars to stand are the ones who are the problem.
