Despite Paying almost half a million naira for a VIP table at the Iyanya album launch concert in Abuja, the singer has lashed out at guests who complained that he served them only groundnut and a bottle of Hennessy.
On Saturday, September 19 the Kukere master launched his third studio album, ‘Applaudise’ and it was held at Thisday Dome in Abuja. The highlight of the album launch was his duet with popular singer Seyi Shay which he created a scene that made Shay ran a distance.
Speaking through his manager, Ubi Franklin, Iyanya said he never promised food and was not in charge of what guest got at the event.
“Go and check Iyanya’s promotion for the album, we did not promise anybody that we would put anything on the table. If you are sitting on the table, it is premium. Iyanya gave them a proper show for three hours. Iyanya and I were not in charge of what would be put on the table,” Franklin said without remorse as he rudely cut off the phone, Punch reported.
An angry guest had placed a call to a punch correspondent complaining about what was served at the concert as against the fee charged.
“When I told my wife that I got a table at Iyanya’s album launch, she was ecstatic because the singer is one of her favourites. It came to us as a rude shock when we were served groundnuts and Hennessy. I mean we paid N400,000 just to be given groundnuts?” the VIP was quoted.
