‘Talent is the only resource that does not run dry

You cannot take your culture to the western world. You can only take your originality.

We need to put more structures in place to drive the growth of the Nigerian entertainment industry.

You don’t need a Godfather to make it in the industry

If you want to succeed in the industry, dive into it because you love it.

2face’s protest failed because entertainers backed out, I’m also guilty.’

Doja Allen

‘Young people should look up to Ali Baba and Basketmouth and see them as mentors if they aspire to be like them.’

Daddy Showkey

‘I am the king of the streets.

Never let anyone tell you that you cannot achieve your dreams.

New generation artistes need to understand that they’re not the first to get international attention. Some of us were approached over two decades ago for our local content.’

Media personality and actress, Dolapo Oni moderated the session

Founder of Shuga Band, Akin was among the panelist

First Bank official, Yinka wasn’t left out during the session
