Ali Baba As MC At Fatima Dangote’s Wedding: The Challenges Faced By The Comedian by newsynews: 12:40pm On Mar 27, 2018
Comedian Alibaba has revealed the challenges he faced being the MC at the wedding between Fatima Dangote and Jamilu Abubakar. Alibaba narrated how the bodyguards of the notable Nigerians made it difficult for people to even catch a glimpse of them. He also spoke of how attention seekers who tried to come close to the elite guests were blocking other guests who were viewing the stage.

Comedian Alibaba wrote on Instagram:

”The challenges of being an MC at a state function, grand wedding, corporate gathering and international event can be daunting. After dealing with protocol, then comes the issues of timing and duration. But the very intricate matter of crowd control can be the most daunting, even for the most composed of all experienced MCees. The #Dangotes and #Abubakars wedding was all of those challenges and more. There seems to be a long journey to achieving the seeming decorum; the type state functions in the West are known for. I have been an MC, 27 years of my 30yrs in entertainment. And learnt the hard way from @BisiOlotailo, #IkennaNdagobo, #RalphOkpara, #PatricDoyle, @IraborSoni and the other greats. The truth is, being a comedian would give you the weaponry to mop up boredom but not enough to steer the programme at decorum defying guests. The job of an MC can be tasking at such events. How do you control VVVIP attention seekers who get high on photo opportunities? What do you say to make such a person who believes standing right in from of the table that has the Vice President, Senate President, 3 visiting Presidents, First lady, 2 former Nigerian Presidents, 2 former Vice Presidents, Emir of Kano… is totally unacceptable? Where do you start from in making these attention mongers know that carrying on a conversation right in front of a stage, or around the Premium Presidential table, while blocking the view of all other guests and obstructing the line of sight of cameramen is a no no? And the MC begged, repeated same announcements, SEVERALLY… Yet, as some people move away, new at’s of attention seekers position themselves again. The security aides are even worse. Who is coming into a hall with such high profile guests to come and harm their principal officers? These aides will stand like CRonaldo is taking a goal bound free-kick. Thereby blocking everyone. I have tolerated these people shaaaaa. I couldn’t hold back at the #DangotesAbubakars wedding reception. What nonsense. Those who even have aides were not as rich as @BillGates. Can you imagine if Bill were to have security, going by bank balance, no one would have caught a glimpse of him…”.

Very very correct..

Unfortunately that's The Nigeria mentality, they don't respect and observe protocols at ceremonies..

It's very very annoying,, sometimes you see them making noise like market women at a time when everyone was suppose to enjoy what goes on,, on the stage..

The truth is that, It's all boils down to poverty mentality..

But who are we to point fingers?

The question is that, is there real hardship and poverty in the land?

The answer is pretty obvious, so these attention seekers are only looking for a way to out of poverty..

In the long run, Our Government is responsible for all this, and this is why each and every adult citizen of Mother Nigeria must get his or her voters card and flush this government out of power..

Forget that one Ali baba, na the take home be the koko. Indirectly, he is letting all Nigerians know he was the MC at Fatima's wedding, coz he did'nt trend at all like the rest.

That's a "big man" wedding that some Nigerians have not experienced and you expect them to observe the rules. by behaving like that (invited and not invited), they will observe everything that is going on in the wedding. Ali Baba you should understand because you too are there to see what you have never seen before not necessarily to do your job. PEACE!
