Promoters and Co- LISTEN UP.

Hey guys! Hope everyone is doing well in blogville land. I am soo busy with summer school and working fulltime that I have very minimal time to myself. I read all of you guys tho, although I may not comment! Today I will be discussing an issue that I feel needs to be brought to the attention of all that are involved in this field of "work". READ AND KNOW THAT MY THOUGHT REPRESENTS THE THOUGHTS OF SO MANY.

Like some of you know this weekend, there was supposed to be an M.I and 9ice concert in Toronto Canada. Girls had gone outfit and hair shopping, boys had gone to rent Dodge Chargers and Escalades to opress and pull effizy(lol). The concert/Parties were supposed to take place on Friday and Saturday and by thursday morning people were already leaving from various cities to make the 5hr or less drive down to Toronto. Thursday for me was very busy I attended two graduations, had a midterm, and had a conference at my church,so I was not by a computer till about midnight-ish. when I turned on my phone after my midterm at about 8:30pm I get a series of text messages from about four people saying M.I had been cancelled. To say I was shocked would be an understatement! I was also livid not because the concert was cancelled but the whole idea that this should NOT be happening AGAIN!.

Promoters in North America, It has become quite rampant that we hear that this artist is coming. or that artist is coming. Then hours before the show is about to start we start hearing gist about how it is cancelled. I am sick and tired of planning to see Dbanj, P square, 9ice, M.I. Vivica A fox, or the likes. I am sick and tired of the bullshit malpractice you people are giving to the proffesion of promoting. I belive as a person of intergity, promoters should make sure every plan and detail is set in stone before a poster is made and a facebook event is created. Its just like me calling Drake's people right now and saying oohh Drake come to my school and he is like yea sure thang and voila I print a poster, start selling tickets, bombabred peoples facebook emails and walls with posters and info about events that are not even planned to a T. What happened to having final details before advertising? I understand most of the times we are all students and hype is a great thing but please the next time someone prints a poster and puts a "celebs" name on there, I want to know for a fact that all plans have been made and it is not just another hyped up thing that ends up not happening.

This is my opinion I do not care who I offened.. If you are offended please go straight to the Rideau canal and JUMP. I am just SICK AND TIRED of the mind games that you lot be playing on a partyriders mind. SO PLEASE LEARN TO STICK TO YOUR WORD, AND IF YOU ARE 100% SURE,...ZIP IT!

Hugs and Kisses
Ms O.

I feel you on that. It has become a recurring situation that needs to be checked. It not enough we (Nigerians) have to deal with incompetency in the government, economy and most other sectors. Now we have to deal with it on the end of entertainers also. It's not a good look on any of the people involved at all. Get it together my people!

Awww, I'm sorry. This reminds me of this entry I wrote after the disappointment that was the eLDee concert in Ottawa earlier this year. I am irate that these promoters/organizers would get us excited and get people to commit money expecting a certain thing and then not deliver. It's irresponsible and what it does is decrease morale because the next time you hear that this artist or that artist is coming, you'll take the information with a grain of salt and probably not even risk going. Then the the turnout will be poor and they'll say "Oh, people in Ottawa/Toronto/wherever don't know how to party so we'll just stick to bringing Nigerian artists to the USA" when it's not true. Lack of organization and not delivering what you promise are two ways to ruin your business before it starts. Nonsense!

@NDQ-Sweetie how are you! you have forgotten me!!!lol! Would you mind them. the problem is that this keep happeneing over and over. I am just sick and tired and I think people need to start being accountable for thier foolishness.

@ Uzo. I wish.. ths is why I always buy these things at the door or on the day of. Becuase with these people you never know.

@BBB, Ahhh you would be damn well suprised!

@Shawty, I am still so vexed, stupid people saying it would still hold in a couple of weeks tho..I dont belive them!

@JJ- I am totally getting you. like forealz! you would think the one sector we wont be "duped" in regards to things of our country..but turst Nigerians to prove us wrong.

@GNG-I am jsut tired of Mediocre events being put together. I dont believe everyone has to be a promoter unless you are good at it I just need people to tell us the consumers the truth.

As a Promoter in the US. I can tell you that it's important to get a signed contract! Not only that but have a Plan B and C in case the headliner flakes or can't make it!

Last....get acts you believe will still be together when promote them. Do your homework! Dude just got out of criminal case... Not the best one! Dude just got into two beefs...maybe not him. Dude just got arrested and is out on bail...Hell Naw! Dig?
