Popular Nigerian comedian AY Makun recently had his annual Easter Comedy show and news flying around the media indicates that the star and his brother, Lanre Makun almost came to blows at the back stage of the show, gistreel.com reports.
The source that made the revelation alleged that most of their celebrity friends decided not to talk about the issue because of its sensitivity.
According to the industry sources who were back stage at the just concluded AY live that held on Easter Sunday, the brothers “Ayo Makun (AY) and his younger brother Lanre Makun were at loggerheads before the event and it wasn’t resolved after the event”.
‘They got into this very heated argument and were close to exchanging blows back stage because AY found out a few days before the event that Lanre had been selling or maybe even giving out tickets to people without his consent’ a source said.
“Ay was very pissed that he had to re-arrange the table settings at the last minute just to distort Lanre’s plans and this didn’t quite go down well’ the source continued.
Two days before the event, AY had taken to his Instagram page to apparently warn people against getting free tickets from his brother.
His full post read,
‘those of you calling @lanremakunevents asking for INVITES to Ay Live on Easter Sunday April 1st… No disrespect o! It is not my birthday or child dedication. It is a gatetaking event with huge investments that must be recovered. We ONLY give out complimentary tickets to direct supporters of the show and limited number of people whom have helped in building the brand over the years. Kindly bear with us. For more information of how to buy tickets for the show, see our previous posts’.
AY had always been notifying his show goers, in previous shows about their need to support his dream by paying for their ticket fee and not seeking free tickets to his shows
