Explaining how they made it to the book, Azuh Amatus showbiz critic and publisher of Day-Light online newspaper described them as prominent contributors of what the showbiz industry has become since its kick-off.
“The Igbo region is currently referred to as the entertainment capital of Nigeria. However, the success recorded in the Nigerian entertainment industry today was highly contributed by Igbo citizens; the industry wouldn’t have been complete without their immense contributions, giant strides and commitment. This is one of the reasons this book should be commended.
The President of Editors’ Guild of Nigeria and Managing Director of the Sun Newspapers, Mr. Femi Adesina writing a foreword on the book, hinted that“it is capsule biographies of not five, not ten, not twenty, but a whopping number of Igbo sons and daughters, who are torchbearers in society.”
Ugochukwu Favour-Mayor the author and one of the members of the editorial team, stated that to celebrate their tribe, they have worked long and hard to put the book together.
He said:“We need to articulate our views on issues of public interest. If we must see that new and rescued Igbo region, truth and reconciliation of everybody devoid of whatever political party or group affiliation is necessary. The elections are over and whatever strategies political parties adopted then was for the elections. After the war, we are expected to move to the next page, which is peace.”
However following the postponement of the elections there have been mixed reactions from Nigerian showbiz starsthat have been part of the election process in one way or the other.
