Port Harcourt based Comedian, Newman Chinda, has gone nude in protest against what he calls Governor Nyeson Wike’s ‘killing’ of the entertainment industry in Rivers State.
He said the industry had the best during Rotimi Amaechi era, producing the likes of Burna Boy, Duncan Mighty, Dan D Humorous and Mr 2kay.
His post (sic)”:
“Your Excellency Sir, Congrats on your Re-election.”
Entertainment which is the bedrock on which a society thrives, should be prioritized in our very own Garden city.
From time past, we’ve seen how up and coming artistes run from Phcity and other states to Lagos which is said to be the “Centre of Entertainment”… This didn’t just happen in a day…
Past administrations do well to keep Entertainment going and so they keep rising.
Your Excellency Sir, Phcity is a Renowned City in Nigeria and as such, we should keep up with that Honor.. Your administration has killed entertainment in the state rather than rejuvenate it, hence the reason people find a way to go to Lagos at every given opportunity.. There’s more to Government other than Patching of roads and renovating dilapidated buildings… The past Governor Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi did well in the Entertainment industry in Phcity… Our Crafts flourished…
Carniriv which was observed yearly attracted investors who picked interest in investing in our Dear Rivers State.
Carniriv Fostered unity and togetherness amongst the people of Rivers amidst other benefits to our Society at large… The young ones felt a sense of belonging as well as the aged.. Your administration has to a large extent killed the Entertaining spirit in our people.. The like of Mr 2kay, Dan D Humorous, Arinze Baba, Burna Boy, Duncan etc attained fame during Amaechi’s Administration Because of his versatility and deliberate empowerment of these Artistes (Up and Coming)
When Davido visited you, the pictures revealed how happy and excited you were hosting a Celebrity, another State Government made that possible by creating an enabling environment for him to grow his Craft and become the Super Star you were happy and quick to host.
There’s a million and 1 artistes better than Davido in Rivers State, but the lack of an enabling environment keeps them below the belt.
The Creative Sector is dead, only criminals are empowered.
