Artiste manager Toni Payne has narrated how ace comedian AY refused to allow Olamide to perform at his show when the latter was struggling as an upcoming artist.
Payne, the ex-wife of an indigenous singer, 9ice took to her Instagram story this morning to recall how she had approached the comedian to allow the ‘Omo Tosan’ crooner to perform but her request was turned down.
According to her, the refusal of AY to allow her artist performed pained her because she had rendered him help in the past.
She revealed that she had a good working relationship with the comedian but was surprised he declined her request
“Lol… I was speaking to a friend today and it reminded me of one story when I was managing Olamide… I stopped speaking to comedian AY cos of this incident and honestly till today, I’m glad I did cos I don’t like people with that sort of character.
So me and AY used to be cool. I’d done favors for him in the past, no big deal. When Olamide was coming up, I decided to ask cash in a favor and ask if Olamide could perform at his show even if it’s for a minute.
Omo, see ela. The man refused to give the boy a chance. It pained me ehn. I took the L and lamented for weeks. Lmao! No wahala, we sha kept it pushing. Anyways fast forward to the next year, Olamide had started doing well and guess who conveniently needed a favor, and wanted Olamide to perform? Oga comedian.
This is the same guy that turned Ola down cos he wasn’t big now looking for “friend of the house” performance. See ehn, it’s ok to turn him down, nothing is by force but don’t come back later looking for a favor from that same person you underrated. It makes you look like a user. IMO!”
