“The drive-in concert event is globally accepted as a new model for hosting safe entertainment events. Lagos, being a prime destination of entertainment and leisure events in Africa, should not be left behind in this new trend that ensures that fans connect with their favourite musicians or idols without breaking COVID-19 safety and environmental regulations.
“Society benefits from entertainment; it adds structure to our social lives. Our goal is to ensure that the entertainment world can operate in a safe and healthy environment to create lasting positive memories, as we adjust to the post COVID-19 lifestyle”, Fasawe added.
The General Manager noted that though the event was successful, there is still room for improvement as the agency intends to do a thorough evaluation of the event and, subsequently come up with a more robust plan for the future while extending the scheme to other relevant sectors.
“Our goal is to support the entertainment sector, in tandem with outlined social distancing and environmental protocols, which will attract heavy sanction, if violated or defaulted flagrantly, to serve as a deterrent to others”, she asserted.
