She made the appeal while speaking on her just concluded Lady Sandoka live musical concert held at the Surprised Pub and Cafe, Benin City.

The 35 years old Sandoka who has put in 22 years in the make believe world, said it is very saddened to have seen artistes from other states gracing the bill boards in the state while the local artistes are not.

“We call for government endorsement because of whatever businesses that happens in Benin, the government is aware.

“We are tired of seeing outside artistes on the bill boards. We want to be on the bill boards as well.

“We just want government endorsement. We want to take the Benin entertainment industry to the next level. This is a very important thing that we need. I am speaking on behalf of my fellow colleagues”, she said.

The thespian who combines music and acting as a career, said the just concluded January 21, Lady Sandoka live musical concert, was a first of its kind and that she decided to hit the ground running by hosting it in her state before taking it round the globe.

She further advised upcoming artistes to show some respect to their senior colleagues if they must go far in the industry just as she urged her fans not to relent in their support for her.
