Nigerian Music Is Next Biggest Export – CHIEF NWEKE

It was a night of fun and non-stop excitement for fun seekers when Don Sylvester Records marked its first year anniversary in Lagos over the weekend. 

The event tagged ‘Don Sylvester Records 1st Year Anniversary Pool Party’ took place at Spa Lavender, Mende, Maryland, Lagos and featured performances from A-list musicians such as King Wadada, Adams Swag, Dr. Coach, Mazi Young, Mr. Smith from Liberia, Wonder Kid, Ozzy B, Isaac 1da, DSR Money crew amongst others.

In an exclusive interview with Chief Sylvester Chinedu Nweke, Director in Diaspora South East Zone National Youth Council of Nigeria and Chief Executive Officer, Don Sylvester Records (DSR) said it is time for government to invest in the entertainment industry especially music as it is the next biggest export of recent time.

“Nigeria’s entertainment industry is the fastest expanding major market globally and it would be a good venture if the government can tap into it. 

“Our music industry is one of the biggest in Africa and if well managed in terms of revenue will be a huge boost to the economy as well. 

“If the government can invest in the industry, there will be collaboration which will lead to a better structure that will favour all parties such as record label, artistes, those at the backend like engineers, the mixers, the managers, producers etc. with the right attitude, professionalism in the music industry will be attained, more money in the pockets and more creativity will spring forth,” he said.

The one time manager to several Chinese firms in Nigeria also used the medium to call on brands to support record label with sponsorship. 

According to Chief Nweke, “It is really challenging when you write to big corporate brands for support/sponsorship but keep turning you down.  

“It is not easy to run a record label and that is why we are calling on supports from the governments and big brands as well.”

With over 1,500 party goers in attendance, the event got everything from dance, musical performances, drinks, food etc to a relaxing poolside for guests to unwind. 

DSR fans were not the only ones present at the celebration party, lovers of good creative music, who is who in entertainment, top notch business gurus and more were not left out of the groove.
