Celebrity jeweler and entertainment enthusiast, Derick Chimebere has said musicians, actors and entertainers generally must be commended for their contribution towards Nigeria’s economy.

The serial entrepreneur said while the government has failed to provide the least basic amenities for its citizens, entertainers have produced jobs opportunities and contributed to the economy via shows, music and movies.

He said: “I won’t lie, the government is supposed to thank entertainers for their contributions towards our economy,

you need to see how the industry has changed the lives of youths, he said.

“Do you know how much impact music shows have on Nigeria’s economy? When Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy and the rest host shows either locally or internationally I’m sure the economy feels the positive impact”.
