Dev’t Of Nigeria’s Entertainment Industry Needs Decentralisation – MI Abaga


Hip-hop star and music boss, Jude Abaga popularly known as MI Abaga has called for decentralisation in the entertainment industry to further ameliorate the output of artists and creatives.

He said the need for decentralisation in the entertainment industry is a means to foster growth and development.

Drawing parallels with countries like South Africa, the United States, and the United Kingdom, he emphasised the importance of creating thriving entertainment hubs across various regions.

“The entertainment industry needs to be decentralised for it to really develop. Take South Africa for instance, if I want to shoot a film, it is probably better to go to Cape Town, and if I want to shoot a music video, I would go to Johannesburg. The more we develop in different areas, the better the country gets.

“Also, in the United States of America, there are places like Atlanta, New York, Texas that have thriving entertainment hubs, and in the United Kingdom, there are places like London and Liverpool.

“But, in Nigeria, we only have Lagos and there is a drop off. However, places like Plateau State can really develop and be a part of the industry. For people like me, who have been in the industry for a while, and have had the opportunity to learn, this is a great time to give back, and I’m starting from Jos,” he said.
