THERE was chaos at HICC entrance last Friday as merry-makers were desperate to sell their tickets after the event flopped.
It appears most of the people who had complementary tickets and those who could not stand the paltry crowd wanted to cash in on fans who were milling around the venue.
In an interview, one Chrispen Mahachi who was selling his VIP tickets blamed the promoters for poor show advertising.
“This show was not marketed very well especially when after it was postponed to this day.
“This could have been a great show but considering the fact that it’s almost midnight and no one has performed, it shows lack of something,” Mahachi.
Similar sentiments were echoed by University of Zimbabwe student Comfort Maoneke who complained of the poor choices of supporting artists.
“The show could have been great even with poor marketing but only if the promoters had put in better acts.
“I am not saying the ones they have chosen are bad but they show needs sparks and life from all angles,” said Maoneke.
Moreover there was quite a number of fake tickets which had been sold before the show was postponed.
They were out of the system but people were still selling them at the entrances.
The show started very late with very few people.
However, Mafikizolo honoured the few fans that had attended the show and performed very well.
