The premiere is a red carpe event and local artists will have the chance to network with the featured artists and group face to face, to help personally build up their relationship for the future.
Madam Nyeswah added, “we know our industry in Liberia has not fully developed to be recognized outside, but the network with foreign stars who are big in the Diaspora will help to showcase and headline the local Liberian artists as well as inspire them to unleash their full potential.
“Yvonne Nelson and VIP are really excited about this trip and they cannot wait to be in Liberia,” Madam Nyeswah noted.
