Nairobi, Kenya, December 21 (Infosplusgabon) - A Kenyan film official on Thursday hailed the United States, Indian and Nigerian movie industry for the big contribution they make to the economies of their respective countries.


Dr Ezekiel Mutua, CEO of Film Kenya Film Censorship Board (KFCB), said it was encouraging to the entertainment industry to note that Hollywood, Bollywood and Nollywood are among the biggest contributors to their countries' GDP.


He was speaking at the launch of the Kaswi Chronicle project, a musical album by Kenyan musician, Mbuvi.


The project, funded by KFCB, entails using musicians to foster unity, peace and reconciliation among Kenyans who were polarised by the recent General Elections.


"Artistes and people in the entertainment industry are among the richest individuals in the World," he said, and encouraged youngsters to take up performing arts.


"We nurture talent in music, acting and others. We also train artistes on financial management; the future is not in employment, it is in job creation," said Mutua.
