    They spent so much effort in their outfits and collectively put up a lousy show.
    That performance was so poor I left in anger.
    It will take a while to forgive Laspapi for that poor show.
    Flytyme should stick to concerts and leave stage plays for those who are good at it.

      Are you kidding me??! This is definitely a hater! The show was AMAZING!!! They did amazing and I commend them all. It was an intense show and this type of stuff should be done more in Naija. #HaterAlwaysGonnaHate #GreatShow

      Me, hater?
      I was at the 3pm show that did not start till past 4pm.
      The sound was very bad. Actually awful,if I want to be brutally honest.
      Flytyme were more interested in segregating paying customers in the name of creating a VIP experience. The sound production was very poor.
      The actresses did a beautiful job under the conditions and Laspapi worked a good script but the salient points I mentioned ruined the show.

    Excellent production, fantastic actors….borrring script. and yes, I’m a terraculture veteran! I dozed quite a few times and was more than a tad disappointed.
    @BN commentators, not everyone is a hater. There is something called having an opinion and that’s subjective, ok?

      I respect your view but how could you call that production excellent with such poor sound quality? Unless it improved in the 8pm show.
      On a second thought you may be right on the issue of the script being boring. I am just too biased to Laspapi’s works so not objective enough.

    Idak, make up your mind, was it a good script? as you said in your first comment, or a boring script, whilst i agree that there were sound issues at the 3pm show (i heard from some people who attended) the 7pm show was crystal clear, the monologues were well scripted and well acted, i think that when we are criticizing, we should do it objectively, a lot of time , money and sweat went into putting that show together, have you thought maybe Flytime outsourced the sound? and were probably as mad as you are for the sound quality?

    i do not work for flytime, i do however work for one of the companies that was a vendor at the show and i saw some parts of how much went into it.
    i probably shouldn’t bother addressing your grouse with VIP ‘segregation’ however i wills ay this, you sat where you paid for no?
