Alibaba Praises Burna Boy’s Impact On The Country

Notable comedian Alibaba has commended Afrobeat phenomenon Burna Boy for doing a greater job than official ambassadors at advancing Nigeria’s international profile.

Alibaba highlighted his unhappiness with the government’s disregard for the entertainment business in economic planning and administration during a Monday, June 10, 2024, interview with Channels Television. He highlighted the creative industry’s significance to the nation’s economic and cultural identity by citing a projection from the Nigerian Economic Summit Group that did not include it.

Alibaba underlined Burna Boy’s importance, saying that the musician had done more to advance Nigeria internationally than any ambassador dispatched to other countries. Acknowledging Burna Boy’s remarkable influence on national consciousness, the comedian praised Nigerian musicians for their vital role in defining and spreading the nation’s cultural identity throughout the globe.

Alibaba claims that Burna Boy is an unofficial cultural ambassador for Nigeria because of his accomplishments, which exceed those of any ambassador. Continuing on the subject, the comedian mentioned that, after agriculture, the creative industry employs the second-highest number of people. The creative business, particularly in Nigeria, is the next biggest employer of young laborers.

The comic emphasized that governments have been slow to recognize the demands of this sizable business, including growth, assistance, and structure.
