“My coming to Kwara will create opportunities for raw and young talents to enter stardom from the state.

“I can assure you that I’m going to be heavily involved in entertainment promotion. This throne of my forebears that I have ascended is to cater for my people and I will do so with all my resources, connections and everything I am. Am here to discover and nurture talents to stardom right here in Kwara state.

“How do you make stars? You scout for artistes you believe are good and pair them with already established stars and known faces. Do it consecutively and you are already on your way to stardom. This is what I have been doing all these years so you can be sure I know what I am saying and very soon, Kwara will begin to see results,” the ace marketer assured.
