Literacy industry and entertainment industry

27 May 2015, 12:10

Which should more attention be given. First and foremost, the workings and role of literacy and entertainment industry cannot be under estimated when it comes to audience satisfaction and level of people’s participation. Although attention should be given to the two industries but entertainment industry deserves more attention.

Many people will ask why, but the reason is not far fetch. Entertainment industry tends to give more pleasure and delight through holding the attention and interest of the audience. Although people’s attention is held by different things, because of individual difference, but the satisfaction still lie in the realm of entertainment.

Other reasons why entertainment industry should be given more attention is because of the following benefits which cut across; amusement, turns private recreation or leisure activity into entertainment, audience appeal, and lots more.

At this point, permit me to support my argument with theoretical framework. Uses and gratification theory will be suitable because it depicts a picture of how people satisfy their needs with entertainment. Although an entertainment might go beyond gratification and produce some insight in its audience when it skilfully considers universal. Besides, entertainment industry is part of the tertiary sector of the economy which includes a large number of sub-industries.

I can categorically place literally industry under the sub-industries of entertainment because it also amuse through reading process but not as effective as entertainment. This indicate that entertainment industry have gone a long way in sustaining people’s attention.

And the only way to encourage is to give more attention to the industry. To cap it all, it is essential to know where we are coming from, where we are, and where we are heading to; if truly we derive pleasure in given more attention to the entertainment industry.

God bless Nigeria, God bless literally industry as well as entertainment industry.
