FG Pledges Support For AFRIMA As Nigeria Hosts 2019 Edition

The Federal Government has pledged its full support for the

successful hosting of the 2019 All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA), as

the country prepares to host the glamorous event in Lagos 20-23

November 2019, with the theme: ”Feel Africa”.

 

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, made the

pledge in a statement in Lagos on Sunday.

 

”When you look at the All Africa Music Awards, it’s one of the

biggest awards for the music industry in Africa, and what government

has done in the past is to provide the enabling environment for the

awards to take place.

 

”We provided support services for AFRIMA, we gave them the backing

they need and I think it’s on record that the AFRIMA editions that

have been held in Nigeria have been among the most successful.

 

”This year again, we are ready to partner AFRIMA professionally, give

them the maximum support such as effective media coverage and also

help them in reaching out to other critical stakeholders,” the

Minister said.

 

He said part of the reasons why Nigeria has successfully hosted the

music awards is because the country has relaxed its visa regime, with

the visa on arrival policy, thus making it easier for people to come

in.

 

AFRIMA, which was first held in 2014, was established in collaboration

with the African Union (AU) to reward and celebrate musical talents

and creativity in Africa as well as to promote African Cultural

Heritage.
