American Artist Over Charging In Africa? by Odeku(m): 7:53pm On Oct 11, 2006
Do you think its worth bringing this so call hip pop artist to Nigeria, why are they over charging outrageous prices in Africa? I was told some of the tickets were sold for over $200. How many people will attend such concert here in the state? my friend in London said he paid 13 pounds to see the same artist. are they taking advantage of us or what do you guys think, how can you have a show in Africa and the regular people that needed the show can't even afford the price? who should be blame?

Food for thought brother. Just goes to show where our peoples' priorities lie. I am sure many would sacrifice to come up with that sum of money but given another option like investing or making a down payment on some credits(college) my people wouldn't.
It is not only a problem in Africa, this problem is a world wide black people problem.
They would spend $200 on a pair of sneakers and packed the welfare offices every end of money to collect other peoples' hard earned cash.

• at the end tickets were still sold for 10,00 naira but that is by the way. I think the price was high to keep out area boys and hoodlums who usually take charge of such shows; raping girls, stealing things and harassing people generally. This has always been the trend at shows in lagos. What is the use of paying a reduced rate and you can’t enjoy it? So I think the concept was to give people who could afford it value for their money.
Also, my friends in the states said its very rare to see that much number of stars performing at the same show. So there Is no way it was going to be cheap. Nigerians are not poor judging by the crowd present at the two shows. Please note I was not an organizer; these are just my views
