Our aim as the entertainment capital of Africa is to continue to use arts, culture, entertainment, tourism and sports to promote excellence in our state. This, of course, is the reason we are hosting AFRIMA this year. We are always willing to open our doors to great and credible initiatives that align with our vision to be the foremost hub for tourism and entertainment in Africa. I, therefore, thank the delegates for this great initiative. More importantly, I congratulate all the nominees. In Lagos, you are all winners and we hope to see you again."
