Prince Chukwuemeka Okolie wins Youth Party's Primary As Surulere Federal Republic.

 Prince Chukwuemeka Okolie has won his primary election under the Youth Party platform. He was elected by the Surulere people to represent them at the Federal House of representatives, making him one of the youngest aspirant to contest for the federal house of representatives.

Prince Chukwuemeka Okolie has always had this passion to lead and help most especially the youths and the aged ones. He is the President of Change For Nigerian youths and also a grass rooter in politics, a sociologist, Strategist and an entertainment Specialist.
 "At age 9, I said to myself, I want to become a President in the future, i didn't know what got over me, but I guess it was the situations of the country as at that time. At age 15 I ventured into the Entertainment industry while I was still in secondary school. I came out of secondary school, tried different jobs and careers including playing football, talking to people and getting my change for NIGERIAN youth (CNY) project ready", Okolie explained.

At age 19 he came up with the initiative Change For Nigerian Youths, according to him the whole idea was trying to get his fellow youths involved in politics.
 He continues;  "Nigeria youths as at that time didn't like the word Politics, because of the ways the Nigerian Politics was practiced. It didn't encourage the youths, So he was trying to get the youths involved by speaking positively to them. I also wrote alot on how the youths can get involved in the role of Leadership and tried to create different avenues which would be used to reach out to them, but at some points my efforts were frustrated by the old politicians but i didn't give up".

As time goes on, Prince Chukwuemeka started meeting people through entertainment and politics and he always tells everyone who cares to listen about the Change for Nigerian Youths and how the youths can get involved in Politics/ role of Leadership in Nigeria.
 Some years ago he became more determined to take a higher step regardless of his young age, he also started hearing and took in the fact that he was never too young to run for the election.

In the last election, he helped a friend in Surulere, a very popular figure to win his elections with some great ideas he contributed during his campaign. The candidate was also a youth as at that time and it turned out well.

He is also the southwest youth leader for a presidential candidate.

Last year he really worked on the CNY project, he got an award from NIGERIA ACHIEVERS AWARD... Tagged Nigerian award for excellency in youth leadership. This year, Youth Party got registered by INEC and the "Not too young to Run" bill was passed. Now he has decided to run for the federal house of representative, Surulere constituency because he is a leader. This will be the first elections since after the military regime that youths can contest.
 As a leader he has been preaching about youths getting involved in Politics now he needs to make the first step because he also said a leader is someone that KNOWS THE WAY, SHOWS THE WAY AND GOES  THE WAY.

As An Upcoming Artiste, You Either Have A Sponsor Or You Are A Yahoo"—Weflo


Fast-rising singer, Weflo has stated that no youth can make it in the Nigerian music industry with their own money. Asked why yahoo-yahoo is believed to be rampant among many upcoming artistes, the UNILAG graduate explained that if you are not getting someone to finance you but you have been able to shoot so many high quality videos, then you are either into fraud or other illicit means of raising money.


While speaking in an interview with reporters about his newly released video, "Ise" shot by top Director Paul Gambit, Weflo lamented that the Nigerian environment is not conducive for upcoming talents because the cost of establishing your musical talent is almost like the cost of going into an oil and gas business.


"The Nigerian music industry is not for a poor person, and this is not to discourage any upcoming artiste from coming into the industry, but the truth is that if you as an upcoming artiste doesn't have anyone backing you financially, you will be depending on only fate to even get attention. Studio fees alone will not allow you to beable to express all your talent. It will restrict you from doing as many songs as you want. Your hit song is probably among the ones you haven't yet have money to record. When time comes to promote the audio, the media will cut your neck and you may eventually not beable to promote the song.


"Don't even let me start with video directors. Sometimes to get a standard video shoot at 1millin Naira, you have to beg directors. Don't also talk about DJs, radio stations and Alaba mix and so on.This is why for every 20 successful artistes making waves, there are probably more than 200 thousand others looking up to God for studio fees. That is why a lot of artistes are into Yahoo and all sorts of means to raise money. It's not in my place to judge anyone, because we are all responsible for our actions at the end of the day. So if you find an upcoming artistes who is shooting all types of internationally standard videos and spends so much promoting them, then money comes from either one of the aforementioned means; not to deny that there are occasional exceptions where the song just go viral without any major effort. In my case though, i have been lucky to have the full support of my parents financially and in all ramifications." Weflo stated.


Explaining further, Weflo says "You might want to ask, can't an artiste get a part time job and save up for his music career? The truth is, like i said earlier, the type of capital you need to succeed in the music business is not the type you use starting a small scale business. You need millions to run it. If you start small, fine!; but 9 out of 10 times you will not break through until you find a sponsor. Maybe if you earn a 7-figure salary, but how many youths in Nigeria earn a 7-figure salary? The few that do are most likely not into music."


Weflo however advised that the best way forward is for banks, government and corporate bodies to support the industry.


"We are in an era where music videos reach 100million views on Youtube, I dream of an industry where a brand for instance can take up the bill of an artiste's musical video shoot in exchange for a feature of their product or service in the video. Banks should also beable to give loans to artistes and government needs to fund entertainment same way they fund sports", he advised.
