She said that since the State Government had advocated for a very low key celebration, it was important to provide an alternative platform of fun that will engage and encourage people to really stay at home to celebrate and enjoy the Sallah festivities.

The Commissioner remarked that one major lesson which the pandemic had brought to fore is the need to create and initiate good ideas that ordinarily would not have sufficed without the pandemic, adding that the drive to keep government activities going despite COVID-19 has brought about several laudable initiatives like the virtual concert.

“We know that the virus is real that is why we have been discouraging large gatherings but despite that, we believe that our people can stay at home and enjoy themselves in an atmosphere that will not breach any of the health safety protocols”, the Commissioner stated.

She also used the occasion to assure stakeholders in the Tourism and Entertainment sectors that the present administration, under the leadership of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has so much in stock for the industry and its practitioners.

While making reference to the N1 billion commitment fund granted to the Tourism and Entertainment industry by Governor Sanwo-Olu, the Commissioner stated that there are other incentives being planned for stakeholders by the government.

She, therefore, expressed the hope that with the cooperation of residents of the State and the ceaseless efforts of the government in respect of the pandemic, the curve of the virus would be flattened very soon.

Popular Islamic singer, Alawiye; renowned Fuji entertainer, Malaika; Stand Up Comedian, Kenny Blaq and hip-hop stars including Small Doctor, thrilled Lagosians and fun lovers across the globe with musical vibes during the first day of the event, while the likes of Teni, Chameleon, Neptune, Desktalker, Omo Baba, Omo Ibadan, APC Queen and Iya N Ghanah among others featured on the last day of the event.
