Ace Nigerian comedian and actor, Ayo Makun, popularly known as AY, has opened up on how he failed in a nightclub business, MVP Lagos.
The comedian stated that he entered into a business that he did not understand how works.
AY made this made known while speaking during an Instagram live interview monitored by Sunday Scoop.
According to the comic star in his explanation, he stated that “I once entered a business that I did not understand. I am very open, there is nothing to hide. There was a time I opened a nightclub. I opened a nightclub with the thought that ‘My name is AY’, I do shows at Eko Hotel, six thousand people attend. If I do my show in Abuja, thousands of people will also come. So I asked myself if I open a beer parlor, will I not be able to gather two hundred people in a weekend? I did not understand that it’s a different calling. That I can gather six thousand people at Eko Hotel does not mean I can gather two hundred people on a Friday night.”
The filmmaker also noted that the lesson he learned from his experience was that every individual should know their strength.
Speaking further, he said, “Because I did not understand how the Friday night business works, it was a fundamental failure; money was lost. What is the message here? I also have two of my friends who were solid in the nightlife business. They decided to have a show at Eko Hotel. It was a disaster. The message here is for everyone to know their strength. Know where you can function, know what you can handle.”
AY also advised young people not to always focus on what they could get when they meet someone who could help them.
He added, “You give someone your number, two days later the person has a house rent problem. You lose people like that when the relationship is all about how to milk them. You just want to go there with a bucket and begin to fetch from that well.”
