Winning the Grammy, Burna Boy, Wizkid took entertainment industry by storm – Osinbajo

VICE-PRESIDENT Yemi Osinbajo has lavished praises on singers Burna boy and Wizkid over their recent outings at the Grammy Awards.

Osinbajo said the two singers “took the entertainment industry by storm” with their achievement on the global stage.

He was speaking at the opening of a Lagos-based Ogidi Studios, owned by the Temple Company.

In a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, ‘Laolu Akande, titled, “How Buhari administration is supporting growth of entertainment industry, by Osinbajo,” the Vice-President said:

“On March 14, 2021, Burnaboy and Wizkid took the entertainment industry by storm winning the Grammy Awards and established themselves as amongst the best musicians in the world.

“Burnaboy won in the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category for the ‘Twice as Tall’ album and Wizkid, the real star boy, in the Best Music Video category for his feature in the song ‘Brown Skin Girl’,” Osinbajo was quoted as saying.

Reminding of the various initiatives the present administration has launched, Osinbajo said, “Last year, the Federal Government handed over the control of the National Theatre to the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Bankers’ Committee. The Bankers’ Committee has committed to an investment of N25bn as initial funding for the development of the Nigeria Creative Centre at the National Theatre, Lagos.

“The sector will receive support from the Central Bank of Nigeria’s Creative Industry Funds Initiative, an initiative that gives financial support to the technology and creative sector at single-digit interest rates.

“The Bank of Industry in collaboration with the National Council for Arts and Culture also has a N300 million loan package for the creative sector, the package provides the funds to the sector at single-digit interest rates with a tenor of four to five years.”

Speaking about the gains of consistent and deliberate efforts by the regime over the years, the Vice President noted that the sector and the country are now better positioned to benefit from the entire value chain.
