On Friday, the Nigerian Government acknowledged the contribution of Nigerian superstar singers to cultural tourism.

Speaking during a phone-in programme with Radio Nigeria in Abuja, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed made the acknowledgement as he mentions ace singers: Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, and Tiwa Savage.

The minister also confidently stated that the country is safe to host the first Global Conference on Cultural Tourism and Creative Industry scheduled to hold in Lagos from Nov. 14 to 17, 2022.

In his words: “The Wizkid of this world, the Burna Boy, Davido and Tiwa Savage have really shown the world that Nigeria is a hub of the creative industry.

“The security challenge Nigeria is facing did not start today and I must say the Federal Government is rising very stoutly to it.

“We cannot say just because we have insecurity challenge, other sectors of the economy should not be developed

“The entire world is aware of the challenges we are facing, yet we were singled out for the hosting of the very first global conference and that speaks volume.

“That is why Nigerians should get out the negativity and look at the positive aspect of it’’.
