Nigerians as we get ready to celebrate the Golden Jubilee in
Nigeria come 1st of October 2010 we should begin to think of
how to give stage plays and the Theatres a new lease of
life. Stage artistes and producers must stop begging for
sponsorship. As the creator of the Performing Arts Promoters
Concept, I believe the time is right for a “pay back” in the
real sense of the word if we truly want the works of the
Nigerian Performing Artists to be appreciated. If at my
level of involvement in theatre I have to beg to promote my
creativity, what will happen to those who never had the
opportunity to make a name in the field? Requesting for
financial sponsorship for our activities has for years
portrayed the artist in Nigeria as a beggar. Investing in
the activities of the artist and obtaining financial returns
will give some respect to the artist.
The Performing Arts Promoters have designed a “money pay
back” guarantee for all those who believe in the arts and
are willing to invest their money and creativity in theatre
If you invest your money in any of our productions you will
