- AY discloses why his nightclub business failed
- Advised young people on how to maintain relationships
Nigeria’s foremost standup comedian and entertainer, Ayo Makun popularly known as AY has revealed details of why his nightclub business failed.
Speaking during an Instagram live interview, the ace comedian sought to inspire young people by making them understand that each person has their respective calling and if you leave your area of specialisation thinking you can thrive anywhere, you might be in for a surprise.
“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 parlour, 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 have the capacity to gather two hundred people on a Friday night.”, the comedian disclosed.
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.”
Advising young people on how to build qn maintain relationships, he said:
“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.”
