Gov. Ambode made this overture at the Lagos House in Ikeja when he hosted artistes who performed at the One Lagos Fiesta (OLF).

Assuring artistes of his government’s continued support, however, the governor expressed concern about artistes travelling to South Africa to shoot video.

His word, “So, there is a concentric cycle around the energy of entertainers and so what I want is a structured framework. What is it that we should do as government to grow the industry? Why should we go and be doing video shoot in South Africa for instance? I want a win-win partnership not just to use artists and dump them till another December.”
