Governor Godwin Obaseki has vowed to bolster support for upcoming artists, aiming to enhance their competitiveness on the global stage.

The assurance came to light during a convivial lunch gathering at the Government House in Benin City, where the governor welcomed Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema, a musical sensation hailing from Edo.

Governor Obaseki articulated his commitment to fostering the talents of young artists in the state.

Reflecting on the occasion, Obaseki said;

“He is here for a private lunch. We had an opportunity to chat and catch up with him. He has not been here since I became governor. Rema left Edo just as I was getting into office as governor. It’s nice to have him back after six years. We had an opportunity to tell him all we have done and how we are interested in supporting young people in the arts, culture, and entertainment sectors. We have commenced the conversation with him on an iconic art project for this City and this part of the Country.”

In response, Rema expressed his gratitude to the people of Edo for their unwavering support throughout his musical journey. He lauded Governor Obaseki’s dedication to the welfare of young individuals in the state, emphasizing the importance of such initiatives.

“The lunch was great and we spoke about a lot of important things, especially his programme for the young people. It’s very beautiful to see a governor that cares for the future. He does not only have a vision for his tenure but beyond the eight-year period. We have so much in stock for the young people of the State. I would not be here in the first place if not for the youths in Nigeria. They are the people I am part of, live for, the people I inspire and motivate. They are the next generation.”

Further discussing his vision for the youth, Rema highlighted the imperative of taking proactive steps to empower and inspire future generations. “This is the time to do something for the youths. I just want to do things. I have been able to make a breakthrough in the music industry. I went out there to perform on the global stage and took Benin City with me. I carried the city on my back and on my shoulders and expressed my culture in the best way I could. The government will make moves and it is also time for the youths to make moves, re-educate themselves, ready to accept new rules for the betterment of the Community and for the evolution of the entertainment industry as well.”
