All is set for the 2016 Christmas. This year, the government of Rivers State would be imitating the coastal states to organise a mega carol. Calabar holds record for one of the most organised carol. And the G.O of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has been billed to make a special appearance at the event.
There is nothing wrong with that. However, in the spirit of growing local talents, the organisers haven’t done much in sourcing for rich local talents and putting their faces on the big bill boards too.
The government may mean well but this steps need to be rechecked. Some of the Christian singers who are from the state found it worrisome that state resources excludes them. But TMR is optimistic that things would change.
