Stakeholders applaud Nigerian artistes

17 September 2014, 15:36

Abuja - Some entertainment industry stakeholders on Tuesday applauded Nigerian artistes for promoting local music and the entertainment industry in general across the world through their works.

A music analyst, Stanley Bantu, in an interview in Abuja, observed that in spite of the lack of support, Nigerian artistes had been rewarded with distinctive awards across Western countries and beyond this year.

"It is a thing of pride for us as Nigerians to be identified with a positive global success rather than being seen as a terrorist country. It is gladding that we are doing better and excellently well in other areas of life,'' Bantu said.

In a separate interview, Esther Onwuka, a lecturer at the University of Abuja, expressed happiness that Nigerian artistes were  making progress as well as projecting Nigeria's name positively.

Onwuka, who is also a dance artiste, noted that most of her colleagues combined Nigerian cultural dance steps into theirs, thereby promoting the country's cultural heritage.

Similarly, Kenneth Chukwu, an upcoming artist, said that he was impressed with the growth of the music industry.

"I am bound to make it with all that I am seeing in the industry. I see a lot of people that challenge me with their skills and success in the entertainment world. I am extremely focused and determined in the pursuit of my musical career and with God, I know I can make it like other Nigerian artistes. I will get to the top like Tiwa Savage, Bovi, Davido and many others,’’ he said.
