According to Ebbi, music has always been a powerful tool for promoting so many things. It is widely used in entertainment, advocacy, activism, advertising, political and social emancipation.
He said, “Fela Anikulapo Kuti of the Afrobeat fame used his music as a tool of conveying the message of emancipation from oppression, fight against racism and social vices. Sunny Okosun played a prominent role in the fight against apartheid with his music, and Christie Essien Igbokwe promoted strong family values. Music is indeed a strong tool in addressing humanitarian ills; it is a tool needed today in Nigeria.”
“In Nigeria today, it is no longer news that our country is bedeviled with all kinds of problems like corruption, nepotism, tribalism, and intolerance among other issues and they don’t seem to be abating. It appears to be a long journey to the promise land; people are loosing hope in this contraption, suicide rate is on the rise,” he added.
Ebbi noted that Nigeria is a great nation, but may not seem to look so at the moment due to the myriad of challenges it is facing. However, it is a nation so blessed by a God in the full ramification and despite the flaws inherent, it is certain that with commensurate effort from its citizenry the country will soar.

Speaking further on the show, Ebbi who is making some inspirational songs believes that the interview, which will be broadcast on social media platforms, is another opportunity to share with the teaming youth the values that took the artistes to the top.
“Receding hope is a problem for any individual or nation; we need to keep hope alive in other to fight for our country and ourselves. This is where inspirational and gospel music is key, in fact, at least an hour dosage every 24 hours can be very healing for the soul and it is highly recommended in these trouble times,” he stated.
