ANNY GETS SUPPORT OF NDDC ON NEW PROJECT TAGGED, ‘PEACE AROUND THE WORLD’
Anne Emmanuel Ibrahim, popularly known as Anny has kicked off a new project tagged, ‘PEACE AROUND THE WORLD’. The initiative, which is already serving as her platform to preach Peace in Nigeria and other parts of the world has been endorsed by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
The project has been fostered with a theme song, titled “Peace Around The World”. The 4 minutes 25 second song features a wide range of artistes across Nigeria’s geopolitical zones, such as Essence, Lambogini, Charles Granville, Sammie Okposo, Sabina, Henrisol, Nene Souldiva, Onos, and Jaywon. The song was produced by the super talented Dokta Frabz, while the video was shot and directed by Frizzle N Bizzle Films.
Speaking at a press conference held on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, Anny encouraged Nigerians to join hands together to promote peace and unity as these are the essential elements that will heal and take Nigeria to the next level. She also used the opportunity to announce her forthcoming ‘Anny Peace and Love Concert’, an annual event that will showcase her music and loads of other inspirational artistes. The event will also be an avenue to display creativity and stage craftsmanship that will attract and influence young people and the society at large.
When asked why she decided to work with NDDC on this project, Anny said, “the interesting thing about NDDC endorsing this project is that, we were already promoting the video and passing the message around ourselves, before they noticed it and called us to support the initiative”.
Anny also made it clear that the collaboration with NDDC is not based on personal interest. In her words, “We are happy to have NDDC on this project, because it also falls in line with what they want for Nigeria – Peace.”
In a statement by its Head of Corporate Development, Ibitayo Abosede, the NDDC reiterated its commitment to the progress and development of the country no matter the area. She said the NDDC was willing to support any person or group with an idea or project that would help foster peace and love among the people.
Anny is not just an artiste; she is a very passionate humanitarian and founder of the Annyluv Education Foundation, a nonprofit based social-humanitarian organization through which she has been able to channel her unrelenting commitment to Women Empowerment, poverty alleviation and Education.
The song “Peace Around The World” is already enjoying heavy rotation on radio, as well as the video on TV channels across the country.
