Lai Mohammed

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 scheduled to hold 20-23rd November, 2019 in Lagos with the theme: “FEEL AFRICA“.

Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, October 20th, 2019.

He said; “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.”

“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 nd creativity in Africa as well as to promote African Cultural Heritage.
