DUBAI: Eighties pop legends George Michael and Andrew Ridgely have vocally condemned a GCC company claiming to offer ‘the ultimate iftar buffet’.
“When we heard that Mammoth Iftar were running a luxury all-you-can eat Ramadan buffet, me and Andrew signed up immediately,” said Michael in a press statement. “The company literature promised the ultimate in post-fasting feasting, all set in luxury surroundings – complete with 5-star sedate entertainment and a water feature.”
However, upon arrival, the 80s hitmakers’ dreams of unlimited hummous and free-flowing date juice were dashed.
“Not only was the fatoush rather bland and the kebabs lacklustre, but it turned out to be a one-visit-only buffet,” said Ridgely. “And the plates were tiny. The entertainment consisted of a 20 Greatest Oud Hits CD on repeat, and the water feature was a cheap garden fountain.”
“And unlike in our smash hit Club Tropicana,” added Michael, “the drinks were not free.”
A spokesman for Mammoth Iftar said: “We are sorry that Wham! suffered a disappointing experience. Most 80s pop legends who have visited our buffets have been delighted.”
