Located in the New Haven axis of the Enugu metropolis, Erokam Empire is undoubtedly the biggest entertainment outfit in the state and the South East region, and has been the vehicle of empowerment to many indgent individuals and communites.
Recently, a leading member of the local community council while paying tribute to Okam’s magnanimity to the community, said: “Prince Ekene Okam’s spirit of benevolence has always been evident. That is why his philanthropic gestures over the years earned him the nickname “Ala Na-Azu Nwa,” which means ‘the breast that feeds the child’.”
The elder further avowed that his attachment to the youths and his desire to make them better people in the society were what earned him the name ‘Eze Umu Okorobia’ (king of youths).”
“He has been a shining example to the youth in the community through his mentoring and empowerment activities.”
