He added that the creative industry is as important as the ministries of petroleum, agriculture and power since most popular Nigerians are musicians.


The former All Progressives Congress (APC) spokesperson therefore called on private sectors of the economy to invest in the industry, noting that the major challenge faced by the culture and creative industry is lack of organisation and unity.

The minister also revealed that the government is set to move Nigerian artists from being talented artists to successful musicians.

Meanwhile, as preparations get into full gear towards the prestigious awards ceremony AFRIMA 2016 this weekend, the African Union and the International Committee of the All Africa Music Awards, have unveiled hosts for the Sunday November 6 ceremony in Lagos, Nigeria.
