Governor Obaseki launches creative hub for music and filmmaking in Edo (Photos)


Godwin Obaseki, Edo governor, has launched the Victor Uwaifo Creative Hub in Benin City.

The newly built facility, named after a late highlife singer, was commissioned during the Edo Mega Youth Concert themed ‘the Guitar Boy Lives On’.

Obaseki said the hub will help to sustain programmes and reforms to ensure Edo youths realise their potentials.

He said his government is committed to leveraging opportunities in the creative industry to empower more Edo youths and grow the state’s economy.

The governor said the hub has facilities to support those looking to produce music, film, and creative content.

“We are here to start a revolution in entertainment. Edo is about entertainment; Edo is about education; Edo is about helping those interested in entertainment to achieve their aims,” Obaseki added.

“This is a sound stage to help artists produce music and films; there is an editing suite that will help artists finalize all their productions.

“In the world today, you can’t ignore young people. 60 percent or more of Edo’s population are young people. The purpose of this government is to open up the space for you.

“Yesterday, we launched the 30- year Edo development plan and the key components of the plan are education, technology, and entertainment. I want to let you know that your government will not abandon you again.


“We will not fail you again; you will not have any need to be frustrated to want to leave home to travel outside. We want to make a home for you so you will not have any reasons to leave home again.”
