Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has hailed the creativity and ingenuity of Nigerian artistes which they have deployed to project the image of the country.
He made the commendation after watching a grand performance of the cultural troupe, Wakaa the Musical, on Monday night, at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja.
Osinbajo, his wife, Dolapo, Senate President Bukola Saraki and Information Minister Lai Mohammed, were part of the dignitaries that watched the cultural fiesta.
The producer of the theatre group and Chief Executive of Terra Culture, Bolanle Austen-Peters said it was the group’s way of promoting creativity in the industry among Nigerian youths.
On the message of Wakaa, Austen-Peters said it is a satire and a message of hope, depicting the triumph of good over evil, also of love.
She thanked the sponsors of the event and stressed the need for the country’s industrialists and philanthropists to “put their money where the message is’’.
Austen-Peters said that the measure was to encourage more artistes and those in the creative industry to produce higher quality of products to be displayed outside the country.
