Florence Ita-Giwa, a former senator representing the Cross River South senatorial district of Cross River state, has shared her thoughts about the unhealthy rivalry in the entertainment industry.
The politician who clocked 76 recently made her thoughts known during a chat with MediaRoomHub while also using the medium to praise Nigerian entertainers for putting the country on the map.
She said that Nigerian musicians have done the country so proud and prayed that they stay as a united front.
Ita-Giwa said; “First of all allow me to congratulate the young entertainers who just did us proud at the Grammy Awards. That done, I wish to commend our artistes for the culture of collaboration they have evolved,” she said.
“It is my desire that they may be continuing on the path of unity and collaboration. They should shun unhealthy rivalry and be more accommodating of each other. Going forward I suggest that as their fame and fortune rises they ought to see themselves as positive role models and behave accordingly,” she added.
Ita-Giwa also expressed her love for music icon, 2Baba Idibia and his style of music when asked who her favourite Nigerian music star is.
“The whole world knows that Tuface is my favourite son and that I love all his songs especially African Queen which to this day makes my heart skip a beat every time I hear it, but the truth is that I love all of them. They are all unique in special ways, every single one of them. The girls are also doing great,” she said.
