The Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Dr. Eugene Juwah has applauded MTN ambassadors on their roles in developing Nigerian youths and the entertainment industry, through what he described as classical music.
Juwah, who gave the commendation in Abuja when he hosted MTN music ambassadors in his office recently, said the musicians themselves had become a standard for the youth of the country.
“You have made the country proud by your creativity, you have shaped the entertainment industry. Through the effective oversight of the Commission, the industry has been able to engage the youth through the promotion of the entertainment industry by way of Talent Shows which have seen the emergence of artists who have become role models for the teeming youth, adding that your shows have enriched lives significantly,” he said.
He told his guests that Nigerian entertainment industry has gone beyond the shores of Nigeria, citing an example of his visit to Atlanta, Georgia, USA recently with some Nollywood producers and actors to attend a seminar where professors and other experts from the USA and Canada came specifically to understudy, analyse and talk about the growing entertainment industry in Nigeria and the influence on other sectors and cultures.
