Nigerian born mandopop sensation, Emmanuel Uwechue, popularly known as Hao Ge has been officially made the Cultural Ambassador for Nigerians in Diaspora.
The Ceremony which held at the state house in Abuja was headed by the Senior Special Adviser (SSA) to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Arewa.
Hao Ge who was accompanied by Chinese investors expressed his gratitude over his new office.
Speaking with reporters at the state house, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Arewa said she was proud of his positive representation of Nigeria as most reports from Asia portrayed Nigeria negatively.
Emmanuel Uwechue who gained fame in China after his performance at the cctv new gala in 2007 has since been the number one black recording artist in China.
This evidently is an appointment well made and needful for its purpose and the dynamic cum vibrant positive portrayal of Nigeria is highly a worthy candidate for this appointment – given the fact that his tremendous representation of our great country did not only reflect in Asia and settled there but vested into the diaspora.
This would affect Nigerians positively not just culturally but politically as well because Hao Ge has built a relationship with his music between Nigeria and China needful to the effectiveness of this appointment and thankfully it has grown beyond the spheres of music and into the political terrains, a relationship with politicians of great repute in China then Asia and it’s weight has gained an acknowledgement from politicians likened to great repute in the diaspora and this would most certainly be helpful to the Ambassador ‘s responsiveness to the responsibilities of Nigerians in diaspora and further affect those in business positively owing to the fact that politics and business have a bilateral relationship.
