Despite the increasing rate at which Nigerian celebrities complain about how they are being affected by the current economic meltdown in the country, PMAN’s president claimed the Entertainment industry is not experiencing recession.
President of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN) Mr Pretty Okafor said, the entertainment industry employed more labours while other industries were laying them off.
According to him;
“The entertainment industry is the only sector that recession did not affect, and will never affect. While other sectors were retrenching workers in the past year and finding it difficult to pay workers’ salaries, the entertainment industry was employing people.
“Artistes and everyone in the industry were busy working, going for concerts, producing movies and music all over the place. We were shooting movies and distributing our albums all over Africa and beyond.”
