The Chairman, Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON), Chief Tony Okoroji has declared that at the next COSON Week holding from October 27 to November 3, 2017, it will be clear to one and all that Nigerian entertainment has truly come of age and that creative people in Nigeria can stand shoulder to shoulder to any group of creatives anywhere in the world.
According to the celebrated former President of PMAN, “we are not going to cut any corners at COSON Week 2017. At each of the seven different events holding on seven different days at seven different venues in Lagos, the best production values in the continent will be on display. Lovers of first rate entertainment are assured that every single event of COSON Week 2017 will be turbo charged. It will be 777!”
Chief Okoroji, the only man in the history of Nigeria to be lowered from the roof of the main bowl of the National Theatre in Lagos onto the stage in a blaze of lights and sounds, was speaking from his Ikeja office of TOPS, the production, publishing, distribution and events firm. According to Okoroji, COSON and TOPS are co-ordinating their ‘A’ teams to ensure that there is zero loose end in COSON Week 2017. In his words, “we are mobilizing over 100 of Nigeria’s best artistes for COSON Week 2017 to spread good music across the land. COSON is the biggest brand in the music industry in Nigeria today and we will be working with the best brands in the land. Good music will be everywhere to give Nigerians succour and reduce the tension in the land. Just in case your friends have not yet heard, please tell them that the COSON Week, the biggest event of the music industry, will envelope Lagos from October 27 to November 3 and the vibrations will spread across the nation. Trust me, the only way to describe it is ‘wow!’”
