Entertainment Industry to become biggest Employer of Labour in Nigeria -- RMD

Veteran actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo has said that Nigerian entertainment industry has the potential of becoming the biggest employer of labour. He said this on social media, while recounting his experience traveling round the country for Glo Mega Music events.

"I have been on the road since April traveling round Nigeria with comedians, musicians and fellow actors.

In all this time, one thing I've observed in all the venues is that the audience is hungry for entertainment, good entertainment. Now, guess what sector has the potential of becoming the biggest employer of labour? I bet you guessed right, "The entertainment industry!".

The fact that California has a bigger economy than mighty Texas with all its oil is no fluke. Potential fades out in the absence of careful and deliberate actions. We need to begin to evaluate the value of an Olamide as an export product, not to mention the likes of Tuface, Flavor, Tiwa Savage, the list goes on and on.

Thank God for Glo! Imagine the hundreds of thousands of people who were fed, school fees that were paid, needs that were met and financial burdens that were lifted by the virtue of the fact that hundreds of people were hired as back house and front house staff, entertainers, etc by Glo throughout this period.

Entertainment is money, Youth culture is money. Plenty money. The government needs to implement and enforce policies that would help it grow, and risk takers are needed for this reality to unfold into existence. Brands & multinationals need to critically look at the entertainment industry and see the different ways of growing it. Glo cannot grow it alone. Everyone must contribute their quota." He stated.
