TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
Our attention has been drawn to a recent
comment making news promoted by jobless and
mischief makers who are bent on destroying the
growing entertainment industry in Kaduna State.
We consider their action a move to cripple the
already fragile entertainment industry in spite of
the huge efforts been put in place by
stakeholders and lovers of entertainment in the
state to resuscitate the dying industry, we are
glad that time has exposed their activities.

its drive to establish a solid entertainment sector
driven on the wheels of industry players who
have committed their resources and platforms to
promote Kaduna and showcase her
entertainment prowess as the hub in Northern

musical performances of the shake body Crona
Skales in company of: ClassiQ, Tolu, Lyrical Dr
Smith, and supporting artists in the state one
night that left music lovers asking for more and
in their hundreds came out to enjoy themselves.

The comment attributed to Praiz, “I did a free
show for people in Kaduna” have called to
question an integrity disposition. For the records,
all artists who were featured on the second
edition tagged: Praiz and Friends came on our
request and all bills borne by Crockcity
Homecoming Group and its partners who in a bid
to control the crowd recommended that the
show be gated. Our first show was free and we

who came to be entertained. Our drive at
Crockcity Homecoming Group is to bring the
best entertainment experience to the good
people of Kaduna state and that we promise to

and well meaning people of the state to support
the growth of this sector and not leave it to die

We wish to use this medium to appeal to
mischief makers to use their platforms and time
in promoting unity, love and a healthy sector
upon which investors will come knocking.
