The Collaborative Efforts to Spring the Rise of the Creative Industry in Kaduna

This article critically appraises Nigeria’s creative industries and contends that although the country is a visible player on the global landscape, it is yet to optimize the full potentiality of its creative industries sectors.
Over the past two nights on Instagram, the creative stakeholders have been putting efforts together to bring positive change to the creative industry in Kaduna State.

With the lockdown which has been in effect in the state for the past one month and not knowing when we are going to get off this whole corona pandemic, I decided to join the growing trend around the world "The Instagram Live"
Instagram Live is a feature on Instagram Stories that allows users to stream video to followers and engage with them in real-time. When users broadcast live video streams on their accounts, a ring highlights their profile picture in Instagram Stories to alert followers that they can view the live stream.
The first night, I had a conversation with Rachael Lolo, Owner of ChaCha Unisex Saloon, Victor Bature, Organizer of the Arewa Laff Loud, John Salami of Jabbowak and Kunle Gaze a practitioner in the entertainment industry for more than 12years
The second night, it got more interesting with engaging with Tinade Dovey of Doveday Delight, Shehu Musa Zock of Nerd Factory and we had to end the night with the most interesting conversation of the night #HeadzMen with Rymboxx and Vzar from the Headzmen.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Sub-Saharan Africa and its fast-growing tech, film, and fashion sectors have become a strong exporter of culture. Nigeria's economy has become the largest in the continent with a population of 174 million and is expected to be one of the world's top 20 economies by projections from the British Council.
The creative industry has a lot of untapped treasures which if the industry is properly nurtured and developed the ripple effect of the gain for everyone in this industry will be adequately felt around from the Fashion industry, Musical Artiste, Show Promoter, Dance, Graphic Designer, Photographer and so on.
I am currently using part of my #Covid19 lockdown time to drive a new change for this industry, I want to bring individuals and organizations who want to be part of the change together let's form a formidable workforce to develop this community of Creative.
After the whole corona pandemic, I and my Team MadeIn KrockCity will organize a "MEET & GREET" for Creative in Kaduna.
Together we can do more If we collaborate adequately.
