A renowned musician, Mr Sunny Neji, on Monday urged the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN) to be more unified in decision making processes for maximum results in 2017.
Neji made the plea in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
The popular pop highlife star said that it was only when the ‘movers and shakers’ of the music industry cooperated among themselves, that meaningful progress could be achieved.
“This is a new year and I welcome everybody into it. However, it is necessary for the leaders in the music industry to be unified in making decisions.
“It is only when we can speak with one voice that progressive steps can be attained and our goals can be reached,’’ Neji said.
According to him, it will be easier to set a standard and enforce such standards for the production of quality songs that can preserve Nigerian culture across the world.
“When there is unity in any sphere of life, only the best can be expected from such venture,’’ he said.
Neji said that 2017 would be a good year for music to thrive and expressed confidence in the new crop of artistes being discovered in the industry.
Neji is popularly known for his hit songs “Oruka’’, “Tolotolo’’ and “Happy Birthday’’ among others.
