LEXY M. a Port Harcourt, Rivers State based artist posted on his Facebook wall on the disturbing matter that has risen in the entertainment industry here in Rivers State, Port Harcourt, concerning the forth coming Rivers State @ 50 Anniversary.
Complains about the government and organizers of the project not recognizing her own home contents and they keep talking about showcasing its own proud culture and heritage to the world via this medium, but what we heard was for all musicians of Rivers State who would like to be part of the event to come submit their Audio CDs at their office for proper screening and auditioning. Hmm that’s really something to raise an eye brown for.

“WAIT A MINUTE!!!
Is there a special day reserved to praise God for Rivers at 50???
I don’t mean a thanksgiving dinner o.
I am talking about a PRAISE CONCERT where our proud Gospel Artists like
MR TALKING MACHINE
THE ROYAL MALE CHOIR
CLAUSTER MALE CHOIR
and many many many others will prove to the world that PH is the Holy base for Gospel music.
Gospel PH based musicians over to u o.”
“DON’T GET US WRONG!
We are not at war with our Lagos based artists and brothers.
We don’t have any issues with them coming to perform in Rivers state if called upon for various events.
We only have a problem with the significancy of the Golden Jubilee celebration with its theme “OUR PROUD HEIRTAGE” which is supposed to showcase great Rivers achievers, talents, cultural values and lovely people but has chosen to borrow from Lagos like we are not qualified.
We are yet to be considered even with all our outcries because they believe Rivers entertainers are toothless Bulldogs. They will be amazed at what we are about to do and how we shall do it.
LET THEM WAIT AND SEE!”
Now what’s your own take about all this?
