To celebrate Nigeria at 50 and promote the image of the country in a positive light,Â multi-talented entertainer, Julius â€˜D-Geniusâ€™ Agwu, has released a new video entitledÂ Great People, Great Nation.
According to the entertainer, this is his own way of projecting Nigeria as a countryÂ blessed with talented human resources, who can stand their own anywhere in the world.
â€œWe are intelligent and we know what we want. A true Nigerian can never be intimidated.Â My ambassadorial role is to keep projecting the image of my country in good light,â€ heÂ enthused.
The new video, dedicated to all Nigerians both at home and in the Diaspora, was shotÂ inÂ LondonÂ and directed by JJC a.k.a. Skills and it is one of the singles from hisÂ forthcoming album tentatively titled The Genius. Other tracks are Hello My Baby andÂ Experience.
Few weeks back in London,Â Julius held the Nigeria at 50 anniversary edition of hisÂ popular show, Crack Ya Ribs. The event, held at The Troxy, was a huge success and as aÂ reward for his ambassadorial roles to Nigeria, he won an award there before returningÂ home for his contribution to the development of the Nigerian entertainment industry inÂ the diaspora.
He was awarded the Best International Comedian to ever come out of Nigeria, courtesy ofÂ Nigeria Arise Award, UK.
