A trio of talented young guys of South-eastern extraction have vowed to revive the entertainment industry in Enugu State against the backdrop of the decline in entertainment in the once bubbling Coal City. Welcome to the world of Slowdog, Quincy and Oodera, three young entertainment entrepreneurs putting their money where their mouth is.
A statement from Enugu State-based DeepWell Entertainment, the springboard for their transformational dreams read thus: “Enugu State has always been in the fore front of entertainment in the South-east and only second to Lagos in Nigeria. The state holds the record for producing a good percentage of the entire entertainment contents consumed in Nigeria. DeepWell Entertainment, an entertainment and media company wholly committed to promoting and improving the entertainment scene in the South-east has been at the forefront of discovering and nurturing budding talents hence it is bothered about the number of outstanding and promising talents in the southeast lying fallow and in need of a golden opportunity to thrive.”
Decrying the stalemate in the entertainment scene in the Coal City, the statement noted that it was sad that Enugu State could hardly boast of developing any new talent in recent times because a lot talented people had to take a break from the entertainment scene and this has thrown stakeholders out of job despite abounding awesome talent.
Noting that the above issues have always been a burden to some well meaning indigenes of the South-east, the statement added that the need to get the industry running again could not be over emphasized as it would restore the buzz and sound of Enugu State and by extension boost the economy of the Coal City and that is what DeepWell Entertainment is all about.
Speaking, Slowdog, a member of the trio said: “A look at the artistes on our platform will reveal that we have been able to inspire a broad spectrum of the people in Enugu State. The people are practically blown away by our billboards in the Enugu Metropolis. That goes a long way to tell you how serious we are to lift the face of entertainment in the East. We intend to create an easy path for talented people in Enugu State to have access to good producers, mix engineers, seasoned video directors, movie directors and event organizers among a host of others and also, create a platform for collaborations with already established acts. We are basically here to help improve the career of every talented person in Enugu. We call on all partners in the sector to join hands and let’s push our talents from the South East. We are open to working with other stake holders and like minds. Let’s together put back the South-east back on the Nigerian entertainment map.”
