Online celebrity booking platform launched in Nigeria
Online celebrity booking platform 9jaBookings.com has been launched in Nigeria with the aim of making bookings easier in Nigeria.
Danjuma Balogun, founder of the startup said the platform operates as an entertainment booking agency that helps individuals to plan or book the entertainment services of any top band, musician, comedian or celebrity.
“Our entertainment booking agents can book directly or through relationships with the artist’s management to book artists, bands, musician, comedians or celebrities for entertainment at your next corporate event, concert, private party, special event, festival, trade show, fund raiser or gala,” Balogun told HumanIPO.
In addition to allowing individuals to book Nigerian artistes and other celebrities for their events, Balogun said the platform will also help artistes to get more performance at shows and events.
“We want to reduce booking scams and we want to eliminate the hassles of booking artistes and calling unresponsive booking agents and artistes’ managers,” he said.
He added that the platform could be used by individuals and corporate organisations.
He said, “It is a very easy to use platform.
