It was a surprise yesternight at the Eko Convention Center, Lekki as popular Nigerian artiste, Bard of Lagos got to his concert early even before his fans began to stream into the event center. There were gasps of shock and surprises on the faces of the fans as the show started early and ended at the exact time stated on the ticket.
We spoke to a fan who identified himself as Mr Emmanuel Wisdom, this was what he had to say. “To say I was surprised is an understatement, I have been saving up for this concert since January, sold one of my kidneys to enjoy ten minutes of singing his songs while he points the microphone at us, but to my surprise I experienced the four best hours of my life last night, selling my kidney was so worth it! I will definitely talk to my doctor about selling one of my livers for Bard of Lagos next concert.”
Punocracy spoke to the concert organisers and ask them how they felt about making history. “We were so surprised as you were, we were planning to sell tickets till four am, start the show at five am and maybe end at 5:20 am, but his early arrival put a wrench in the plan. We will definitely think twice about working again with him in the future.”
Punocracy also spoke to the artist himself, who didn’t look happy about making history. “I blame my personal assistant, he told me the show was at 7pm, that’s why I arrived at 12pm. I didn’t know the show was to start at 1am. Show promoters may never work with me again, my career is ruined!”
Punocracy is happy to have had our correspondent on ground to cover an unprecedented moment in history that we have been able to share with our intelligent readers.
