The rising star, Bella Shmurda, has taken a significant step in seeking support from the Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde. This is for his concert Tension Rave which is scheduled for January 3, 2024.

In a recent video released on social media, the artist is seen engaging in a discussion with Governor Seyi Makinde, emphasizing that his request is not centred on monetary support but rather on seeking a fatherly approval standpoint for the said event.

The video captures the moment when Governor Seyi Makinde gives his approval and goes as far as informing one of his aides about his support for Bella Shmurda. Bella Shmurda’s proactive approach to engage with Governor Seyi Makinde reflects the growing need for increased government involvement in the entertainment industry, especially in Oyo State.

As the Nigerian music industry continues to experience unprecedented growth and success, the artist’s advocacy for support from government officials is a significant move towards fostering a conducive environment for the industry to thrive. The video has sparked positive reactions, with many lauding Bella Shmurda for his initiative and Governor Seyi Makinde for his supportive response while others are indifferent about the interaction.

Bella Shmurda’s event Tension Rave is also scheduled to hold in London on February 25, 2024.
