The OAP also recalled her experience with someone she helped share her flyer on Instagram.
Dear creatives , do not hesistate to say “NO” to family members / family friends who don’t want to pay for your work. When I was mc’ing weddings a few yrs ago – some aunties /uncles will say “Come & MC your cousins wedding” but wouldn’t want to pay. I’m not around Ma.
Makeup artistes /photographers /artistes suffer this too.
One said “Please help me post this flyer on your IG page .” I helped her the first time . The second time , she came again & said “Please help me post this on your page and send your Acct details – let me send you 20k for the weekend “
I didn’t reply . You’ve got jokes .
