Renowned comedian, born Ebi Tubotu, popularly known as Shakara, have decried the death of night life in Warri while charging the Delta State Government under the leadership of Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa to invest on the entertainment industry.
The comedian made the appeal today in Warri while applauding the state government that the time, energy and resources invested on Efe from the just concluded BBN were not in vain.
Commending Deltans for the show of love for the winner of the Big Brother Naija 2017, Shakara called on Governor Okowa to invest more on human capital development in order to bring out more talented Deltans from the streets.
Speaking on the death of night life, the Comedian lamented that night life was dead in the oil rich city of Warri as a result of insecurity and urged Government to tackle the situation.
In his words: ” Am so glad today that another talented Warri boy has been discovered. This is a good news. But I must say that the State Government is not doing anything about the entertainment industry and entertainers.
“Talents are wasting away in Delta State. If Efe had remained in Warri, he would not have been known. But he moved out of the State to bring out the best in him”.
Adding that “Today most of us are in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt, performing in big shows because it is not conducive for us back in our State. Government just refused to do anything about the entertainment industry and entertainers.
“Government should embrace the entertainment industry. No more night life in Warri, this is very bad. Let the government encourage the entertainment industry so that we can discover more talented Deltans like Efe that has done the State proud”.
“I believe that Delta state precisely, Warri can be better than Lagos if the Government only want it, I still believe in Warri, it is so shocking that at night there is no single street light that is on, the entire city is as dark as hell, this is a city that has produced stars like Alibaba, I go dye, Gandoki, I go save, Baba KOME, Emma Grey, Gordons just to mention but few” He stressed.
