“Since we launched in 2004, we have trained over 6,000 young people from across Nigeria and other parts of Africa; and we are excited at the great things they have accomplished within and outside the entertainment industry. This recognition by LESA means a lot to us, and we continue to play our role in strengthening the nation’s economy, by training future employers of labour.”
