Impressed with the success of the Burna Boy ‘Lagos Loves Damini’ January 1 show, the UK government has begun talks with its organisers toward exploring a partnership that would shore up the entertainment sector in Nigeria.
Steps toward the partnership kicked off in a meeting held at the British Deputy High Commission in Lagos on Friday.
At the meeting were Creative Economy Catalyst Ltd, the main promoter of the show, Mr Kaycee Kennedy; Country Director, UK Department for International Trade, Chim Chalemera.
In a remark, Kennedy listed the positives including the fact that the show was the first African Show listed on Burna Boy’s official website + ticketing.
He also pointed out that the show was the biggest outdoor music concert with over 30,000 audiences.
It also had the biggest car parking in an event – over 11,000 cars – and was also the pioneer single source online ticketing via wallet, he added.
Other major positives included the fact that there were no reported casualties, theft, sexual assault or sexual harassment.
