Speaking on the focus of the outfit, the management disclosed that the organisation is neither a record label nor artiste management outfit. The statement continued: “Atunda Entertainment is part of the activation of Motherland Beckons, founded by the President of La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort, Otunba Wanle Akinboboye. Its focus is developing and promoting different aspects of the continent through its Continent Building project devoted to attracting African both and home and in the Diaspora to the motherland.”
Among others it has developed an economic blueprint known as Diaspora Nigeria Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (DNERGP), which affords Africans in the Diaspora to invest in Africa and own businesses alongside its Hope, Unity, Rebirth and Prosperity (HURP) programme.
Also, as part of this developmental process, African international Music (AIM) Festival was introduced by Motherland Beckons about three years ago to provide a platform for its artistes and other artistes in the creative industry to exhibit their talents, thereby attracting interest from the public and corporate outfits in furthering their growth.
