Nigeria’s Crème De La Crème Gather May 20 For The Commissioning Of The Magnificent COSON House

Saturday, May 20 will be a historic day in the annals of the Nigerian creative industry as Nigeria’s glitterati gather to commission the magnificent COSON House in the heart of Ikeja. Painstaking arrangements are in top gear to ensure that the much-anticipated event is memorable and hitch free.

COSON House is the first fully owned property of its kind by any association, union, society or group in the history of the Nigerian creative industry.

At a recent press conference, COSON Chairman, Chief Tony Okoroji said, “it is instructive that we did not get one Naira assistance from the federal government or any Nigerian government at all to finance COSON House. We did not get one dollar from any donor agency or any foreign institution to build COSON House. It is also instructive that we did not take a loan of any type from any bank to finance COSON House. I am proud to say that when the ultra- modern COSON House is commissioned on May 20, we will not be owing a penny on the building or on any of the facilities contained therein. The building and facilities within COSON House fully belong to musicians across Nigeria and other stakeholders in the music industry, forever without any encumbrance whatsoever”

According to Chief Okoroji, “we have not just set up a building that will house our corporate headquarters but assembled compact facilities for study, research, training, retraining and continuous dissemination of information that will ensure that the concept of intellectual property takes root in our fatherland and that Nigeria becomes an important player in the new global knowledge economy. In COSON House, we have created a hub for all those who want to understand the intriguing subject of copyright and other forms of intellectual property”

The die is cast. The stage is set. Paparazzi will be there in full force. On Saturday, May 20, Nigeria’s glitterati, all dressed to kill will head to Ikeja to be part of history. They will join in the roll out of the brand new COSON House. It will be an event to remember.
