I Said What I Said, Africa and Nigeria’s number one podcast, has demonstrated its huge diaspora followership as its maiden London show was held amid fun, glitz and glamour to a sold out audience.
The live show was initially planned to be a day event but the myriad of requests by the fans of the podcast in the diaspora made it to be extended to two days.
Held at the 700-seater Assembly Hall in Shoreditch Town Hall, London, the show was a continuation of those in Accra, Lagos and Abuja.
It depicts the acceptance the podcast has among people looking for humour-laden and honest conversations on what life is about from the perspectives of two young women.
There was comedy and music to serenade the audience before the hosts were ushered in to a wide applause.
Shola Williams said she has been a fan of the ISWIS pod for two years and when she heard they will be doing a show in London, she had to be there and was happy to see the podcast live.
Another fan, Dayo Oyebade stated that his admiration for the work put in by the hosts endeared him to the podcast and knowing it will be staged in London, he made plans to attend.
Seyi Ekisola, Managing Director of Eggcorn Digital, the executive producer of ISWIS podcast, said the acceptance is a reflection of the tickets sold out in less than three hours on the first day.
“It was an amazing turn out with audience engagement on both days. Aside from conversations on relationships, marketing snippets was chipped in with entrepreneurs promoting their products and services,” Ekisola noted.
