Burna Boy Has Done More For Nigeria Than Our Ambassadors – Alibaba

Comedian Alibaba has lavished Afrobeat artist Burna Boy with praise.
He stated that the singer is one of the greatest ambassadors of the country.

In an interview with Channels Television, Alibaba expressed dissatisfaction with the government’s economic planning management of the entertainment business.

He referenced a projection by the Nigerian Economic Summit Group that specifically excluded the creative industry, emphasizing its importance to the country’s economic and cultural identity.
“Two years ago, the Nigerian Economic Summit Group looked into a forecast of the Nigerian economy in the next five years, and the entertainment and creative industry was not considered,” Alibaba said.
A booklet of about 200 pages was done and the creative industry was not considered. The value of the creative industry in Nigeria is beyond the country.
Alibaba emphasized Burna Boy’s value, claiming that the artist had done more to promote Nigeria on a global scale than any ambassador sent to international postings.
He complimented Nigerian musicians for their critical role in defining and disseminating the country’s cultural identity worldwide.
“Burna Boy has done a lot more for Nigerian national awareness than any ambassador that has been posted to America, the UK, or any other place. So Nigerian artistes are creating national awareness and making other countries know about us than any ambassador would have done,” he added.
