Presenting the invite to President Koroma, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and founder of KME, Lawyer Abu Bakarr Turay fondly called Kabaka said his vision is to see young people develop and grow to a meaningful height in society. He said his company has ten artists drawn from all regions of the country. He pointed out that the growth of the entertainment industry will significantly boost the growth of the economy and also transform the country’s tourism and culture, adding that currently the entertainment industry needs someone with the pedigree and integrity to give the industry a facelift.
