OKOWA URGES DELTA-BORN ENTERTAINMENT STARS TO MENTOR YOUNGER ONES
Delta Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has urged Delta-born stars in the entertainment industry to mentor budding talents to ensure that the state continue to play dominant roles in the industry.
Speaking on Wednesday at a Delta Talent Development Summit organised by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Entertainment, Mr Akpobome Ogude popularly known as Ogus Baba in Asaba, Governor Okowa observed that the state is reputed for exporting talents in the entertainment industry.
He stated that talented Deltans who are doing well in the industry should be regular in the state to mentor younger ones to enable the state continued to play dominant roles in the industry.
“When we have so much talented people from the state and those who are growing talents both locally and internationally are from the state, it makes one feel very happy and when they remember that home is home and they are ready to give their expertise without expecting anything in return because they want to give back to the people, then you will realize the importance of being appreciative for their presence.
“So, I want to thank all of you who have come in to participate in this summit; we are truly very grateful and it is our hope and prayer that those that participated in this summit have learnt a lot from the veterans he because, we cannot leave our youths alone.
“The youths have to learn from people and I know that the veterans here are role models and when our youths continue to see such persons, then they will be motivated to try to do their best so that they can fit into the shoes of those that have come before them when they break out in the industry because, I believe that Delta State will continue to play leading roles in all aspect of entertainment in this nation and also in sports as well.
“For all the delegates that have attended this well organized summit, I do hope that you have learnt a lot today and that you remember that wherever you find yourself, you should show commitment to whatever you do because, only then will your best be shown and shared for the improvement of the state and the nation at large.”
Mr Richard Mofe Damijo at the event thanked Governor Okowa for recognizing Ogus Baba and encouraging him to do his best in improving the entertainment industry in the state.
Some of those who attended the programme include, Rachael Oniga, Omawumi Yusuf, Ali Baba, Emma Grey, Emma Ogosi, among others.
