Yesterday we reported that the heavily hyped Appuntoshuga event held in the city of Port Harcourt was confirmed a flop by many attendees who expressed their disappointments ranging from poor sound management and some other factors.
Social media was quiet after the event until a Port Harcourt based Facebook influencer and content creator named OverHype Isaac made a series of post which got our attention.
In one of his posts, he wrote
“No doubt the Event Sold Out” But remember when ChopLife sold out? Yet they said it flopped. So, what is stopping me from saying that an event that sold out, flopped?
Yes, as you must have thought, that sounded personal but this is a key issue that should be checked before it burns down the entire industry. However, some commenters noted that the ChopLife was talked down by other influencers because the Organizers did not involve them in the affairs of the event.
An industry as big as Rivers state cannot be subjected to a group of selfish people who think they should be billed to participate in every major event happening in the city. It is the right of the organizers to hire whomever they think would deliver their job smoothly and so at this point, it is, however, unnecessary to say that badmouthing an event you were not billed to promote is rather unprofessional and wildly unreasonable.
Finally, an event where money was spent to put up to promote and entertain is not a family setting where you come for your brother because he was given a bigger portion of land by your late father.
