  • It makes for a volatile mix of characters and events and situations according to him.

Ade Bantu believes the Nigerian entertainment industry can only flourish if structures are put in place and desperadoes who are exploiting people are taken out.

The musician and organiser of Afropolitan Vibes stated this in a chat with Thenetng at the Nigerian Entertainment Conference.

He said, ‘We just lack structure. If you don’t have structure in place, you don’t have an industry.

‘We have all the legislation that’s been put together but they are not being implemented.’

Ade Bantu added, ‘When you have a lot of desperados from artistes to management to so called labels, and also media exploiting vulnerable, uneducated young people that just want to make a dollar and keep on going, you have a very volatile mix of characters and events and situations.

‘So it is very challenging, but what I think is paramount is we all educate ourselves and then have the right players that come in.’
