Industry News: M.I Abaga Named Energy Ambassador for Lagos State

Sharing is caring!

I was on twitter, over the weekend, when I saw M.I Abaga tweet about being named Energy Ambassador for Lagos State. I thought I would see more information in the form of a release with more details for the press and bloggers. None seems forthcoming, yet.

What I was able to find, after a little research, was M.I’s upcoming Google Hangout event with the Governor scheduled for September 27th, 2013. I look forward to learning more because it is a great initiative. I am a Californian by birth and my family’s heritage is Calabar/Akwa-Ibom. If you know anything about both states, then you know nature, energy, conserving energy is all very important. It is a lifestyle so I really am interested to learn more about this initiative for Lagos State, the place I was raised.

Congrats to M.I! By the way, I am curious about what goes into these state endorsement deals. We learnt of D’Banj, about a week ago, being named Tourism Ambassador for the Federal Government. In that deal, D’Banj allegedly brokered millions of Naira in exchange for his new role. Does M.I’s situation also involve such large sums of money?

I asked before and I am genuinely curious to know. Can someone shed light on the deals brokered by state officials with our artists/actresses/ or actors to act as ambassadors for these respective states? What goes into it?

I find it odd, the alleged huge sums of money aspect, but would rather learn more about how this works, first.
