Entertainment Industry Needs Regulatory Body- Kenny Saint Brow
Spread the love Gospel music act, Kenny St. Brown, has said the entertainment industry in the country needs a regulatory body to safeguard artistes and creatives.
Brown made this known during ‘The Morning Show’ on Arise TV Friday, while discussing the death of late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka MohBad.
In her words, “What we are seeing now is as a result of neglect. Neglect from the government, neglect from the system that should have provided a regulation, policies, protection, and defense but, this is an industry.
“The entertainment industry in Nigeria is organically grown, and because it is organically grown, they think issues can be settled without a third party”, Brown said.
“It has gotten to a stage where things have gone beyond our hands. The entertainment industry is porous anyone can start a label and sign artiste, no regulatory body to curtail this”, Brown added.
Brown said, “If the pharmaceutical industry can have a regulatory body called NAFDAC, creatives should have one too.
“Until we have a regulatory body for the entertainment industry, record labels will continue to expolit these young acts.”
