JJ Barry sold more ticket than the hall could accommodate and promised others, including one Victor Omorodion, tickets at the gate.

Tickets were sold at various prices: Early bird ticket – £15, Regular – £20, VIP (including food and drinks) – £30 and Table for 8 £400.

The event started at 9 p.m, however, guests were still locked out at about 12:54hrs, the time NAUJA CENTER correspondent left the scene.

The rowdiness almost turned violence as aggrieved guests demanded a complete refund until the Metropolitan Police arrived to disperse.

Ticket holders weren’t the only ones left out in the cold, actors imported by JJ Barry from Edo State were also not given access to the event.

A group who arrived in a Limousine, NAIJA CENTER learned, was one of the high tables guests was also left in the cold.

Many aggrieved members who spoke with NAIJA CENTER complained that the organizer locked them out without addressing their grievances.

Others wondered why Barry refused to learn from mistakes even though it’s his 8th edition of the event.

Imported artists left in the cold included Esther Edokpayi aka Lady of Soong Band, Sylvester Uwadiae, President of Edo Artist in Edo State, Greg Igbinosun, Amb Dion Osagie and a host of others.
