A gospel musician, Mike Abdul, has advised young artistes to grow beyond talents and use their music as a weapon to create positive values in the country.
Abdul said this on the sidelines of the Gospel Music Auditions’ maiden edition organised by Fifth Dimension Entertainment at the weekend in Lagos.
He advised young artistes to infuse knowledge with their talents, urging older ones to interact more with young artistes rather than talking them down.
Abdul, who commended the organisers and called for more of such programmes, stressed that sponsorships are needed to sustain such initiatives.
Also, Iyke Michael, an actor, said that the movie industry had infused various cultures and harnessed them to promote the country.
Similarly, the President of the organisation, Prince Iheanyi, said the audition was to create a platform for upcoming artistes to find a confident place for their voices and also to select people who will be part of their entertainment crew.
