Akon’s wife Rozina Negusei has expressed interest in transforming the Ugandan entertainment industry by announcing a million dollar investment package.
A report by Eyegambia has confirmed that the CEO of Zanar Entertainment, Entreeg Records & Entreeg Entertainment Group revealed that she will splash $12 million for the Ugandan entertainment industry over a period of five years.
Rozina was speaking during her visit to Uganda where she had been invited by Isaac Kigozi, Managing Director of the East African Partners (EAP).
Under the announced investment plan, Rozina disclosed that what she intends to achieve is that Uganda will eventually become Africa’s Hollywood.
“We wanted to bring entertainment in Africa, we are looking for a hub, a home to be the Africa Hollywood; America became America not because of Agriculture but because of the entertainment industry. If we bring entertainment whether movie, music award, every year, Uganda can become the home of the entertainment industry,” she said.
She further encouraged that Africans should not wait to be recognized but make an effort of recognizing and appreciating what they have to offer.
Beyond entertainment, Rozina during her trip in Uganda has been exploring the country alongside Turkish investors for opportunities to invest in.
The team has also expressed interest in investing in other sectors like Agriculture, solar, and real estate in a bid to bridge the gap between East Africa and West Africa in terms of business and trade.
