Nasarawa State Commissioner for Youths and Sports Development, Amb. Lucky Isaac Yargwa, has challenged youths to consider music as career and not just a hobby.
Speaking at the climax of the 2022 Evangelical Reformed Church of Christ (ERCC) GCC Choir Concert which held on Saturday October 8, 2022 at ERCC Class Ungwan Kafinta, Wamba LGA, the Honourable Commissioner said there are so many youths with immense musical talents that are wasting away.
He said: “There is hardly anybody in this country today that doesn’t know Solomon Lange, Frank Edwards and Sinach. And it is because of their exploits in music.
“There is no reason why you should not earn a living from doing what you love. Music can be much more than a hobby, you just need to put your mind into it.”
According to the Commissioner, he was impressed with the quality of music at the ERCC choir concert saying that they are at par with the best anywhere in the country.
He urged them to strive to achieve more with their talents and assured that the Nasarawa State Government through his ministry will always be available to help youths of the State to do exploits.
The ERCC GCC Choir Concert is an annual event that gathers choristers from all 12 Conferences of ERCC as well as from Alushi Headquarters and the ERCC Theological Seminary, Ayu.
