Nigerian, Edo-born, musical artist Sandra Agbogun is also known as Lady Sandoka, has appealed to the Edo State government to endorse local artists with the view of promoting entertainment and creating job opportunities for its teeming unemployed youths in the state.
She made the appeal while speaking on her just-concluded Lady Sandoka live musical concert held at the Surprised Pub and Cafe, Benin.
35 years old Sandoka who has put in 22 years in the make-believe world, said it is very saddened to have seen artists from other states gracing the billboards in the state while the local artists are not.
“We want endorsement because of whatever businesses that happen in Benin, the government is aware.
“We are tired of seeing outside artists on the billboards. We want to be on the billboards as well.
“We just want an endorsement. We want to take the Benin entertainment industry to the next level.
“We want endorsement and I think this is a very important thing that we need.
“I am speaking on behalf of my fellow colleagues”, she said.
The thespian who combines music and acting as a career, said the just-concluded January 21, Lady Sandoka live musical concert, was a first of its kind and that she decided to hit the ground running by hosting it in her state before taking it around the globe.
She further advised upcoming artists to show some respect to their senior colleagues if they must go far in the industry just as she urged her fans not to relent in their support for her.
