This week, GistVille profiles another successful Nigerian entrepreneur who has proved that the first thing needed in the entrepreneurship journey is not money, but action, perseverance, passion and the will to make it.
Mr. Oghenetega Efedede is the C.E.O of Cape Music Entertainment Television, (CMETV). CMETV is a Pan African cable television channel launched in 2017. The channel started online and is set to hit TV screens this year.
Even though Mr Oghenetega keeps quite a low profile, his business and ongoing projects is proof that he is a well-grounded and successful entrepreneur who also cares about youth empowerment. There has been a lot of buzz recently over his just-concluded music talent hunt competition by which had hundreds of entries since 7th of April, 2018, with Adedara Oluwaseun Abayomi aka Skriptzz emerging as the winner of the competition. The competition was followed and unanimously declared free and fair, attesting to the integrity of Mr Oghenetega.
He stated that the competition was aimed to promote Nigerian raw talent and expose them to Nigeria, Africa and the world at large. The winner (Skriptzz) was rewarded with a cash reward of N100,000, a complimentary video would be shot for him and his song would also be promoted online, on radio, TV, and clubs. Now that’s an awesome way to give back.
You’ll agree he is one of the few Nigerian entrepreneurs who truly deserve some accolades, right?
