Poor Keri. Word on the street is she went to Nigeria and didn’t get no love!
Via OMG Ghana reports:
When I heard about Keri Hilson arriving Abuja for the face of Sofa Lounge show, I was surprised because I felt there wasn’t enough hype and publicity. However thinking more about it, I pushed the thoughts aside, concluding that there might have been, but I missed it.
Unfortunately, people present at the show which took place at the International Conference Center, report that it was an outright flop, scantily attended, and sent me pictures below showing how empty the hall was.
Normal ticket for the show cost: N7500, VIP: N20,000, VVIP: N500,000.
Whereas, early this month the Minister said, About Half of Abuja Households Earn Less than N30, 000 per Month.
Dayuuuum, ain’t nobody checking for Keri Hilson in Abuja?
Hit the flip for the pics…
To be fair, this sounds like it was the promoters fault. They should have known how to price and promote the event. And for those curious about how much Keri was trying to get, the amount converts to about $47.50 for regular tickets and $126 for the VIP ones.
Update: We spoke to a DJ familiar with Abuja who said that Ciara and 50 Cent got a similar reception there.
Keri and Ciara do seem to have a lot in common these days. #Struggle
