Meanwhile, in another news…
Early this year, it was reported that the United Kingdom government had begun talks with organisers of Nigerian Grammy winner, Damini “Burna Boy” Damini‘s show in Lagos with a view towards partnering to give the entertainment sector a boost.
Impressed by Burna Boy’s ‘Lagos Loves Damini’ concert which held on January 1, 2023, a meeting was held with the organisers at the British Deputy High Commission in Lagos.
Main promoter of the show, Creative Economy Catalyst Ltd Chief Executive Officer, Kaycee Kennedy, said the positives of the concert include that it was the first African Show listed on Burna Boy’s official website with ticketing details.
The promoter explained that ‘Lagos Loves Damini’ was the biggest outdoor music concert with over 30,000 audiences.
He said that the desire to address the main challenges and negatives encountered at the Lagos show necessitated the visit to the British Deputy High Commission to meet with the UK Department for International Trade and discuss possible collaboration for future events.
In her address, Country Director, UK Department for International Trade, Chim Chalemera said she was delighted about the potential benefits of the partnership with Burna and his team.
She said; “The UK is very happy to support the Creative Economy Catalyst team as part of our extensive engagement with the Nigerian Creative Industry.
“The UK has much to offer in terms of expertise when it comes to the delivery of large-scale entertainment events such as concerts and festivals. We look forward to seeing how this expertise can be applied for future events.”
