The senator representing Bayelsa east in the national assemble senator Benedict Murray-Bruce has spoken on the popularity of Nigeria.

The Nigeria business magnate says that with the current hype on our musicians and Nollywood stars that Nigeria as a country is far from being popular compared to these celebrities.

In Ben’s post on his twitter handle the founder of Silverbird group says that Nigeria is only famous and not yet popular, if he was the president of the country he would have used the popularity of celebrities like Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) to gain popularity for the country by appointing them ambassador to African and Caribbean countries.

The self-acclaimed common sense advocate said that by making them ambassador, with time the stars will make the Black world have a positive opinion of Nigeria helping us fulfill our role as unifier of the Black Race.

Here’s what he said;

“Nigeria is not a popular nation. We are famous, but we are not popular. However, Nollywood and Nigerian artists are popular. What we must do is to use Nollywood and Nigerian artists to perform a PR surgery by transferring their popularity and credibility to Nigeria as a nation. If I were President, I would send emotionally mature Nollywood stars, Like Omotola and RMD as ambassadors to African/Caribbean nations. Over time, such stars will make the Black world have a positive opinion of Nigeria helping us fulfill our role as unifier of the Black Race.”
