The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has told Russian parliament that Nigerian music stars:

Davido, Tiwa Salvage, Timaya. Wizkid and others will soon takeover the music industry in the

country as they have done in other nations.

Saraki also told the lawmakers that Nigeria has become a powerhouse when football and other

sports are mentioned, adding that, “We have already won the battle of the football jerseys; the

Super Eagles kit is an instant classic, a coveted collector’s item, universally acclaimed as the best

national kit in Russia 2018.”

He said that the entire Nigerian nation is with the Super Eagles who are in the country for the

2018 World Cup.

Saraki addressed the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation at the invitation of the Chairperson

of the Federation Council, Valentina Matviyenko on Wednesday morning.

The Senate President on Tuesday led a Senate delegation on a three day parliamentary visit to Russia,

aimed at deepening legislative best practices and further strengthening the relationship between both

countries.

Speaking on the Super Eagles, the Senate President said, “ In sports, well, please allow me to say

humbly, that it will be difficult to take your eyes off Nigeria during the ongoing World Cup tournament.

If anything, we have already won the battle of the football jerseys; the Super Eagles kit is an instant classic,

a coveted collector’s item, universally acclaimed as the best national kit in Russia 2018.

“Naturally, the entire Nigerian nation is behind our team, optimistic for a sterling performance in the rest of the tournament and confident that our boys will now

produce the sleek moves to match the sleek looks.”

Saraki further gave reasons Russia should reckon with Nigeria, adding that the West African country

has the second largest film industry in the world, adding,“Our position, therefore, is simple: those who

are serious about expanding their interests in Africa must necessarily see Nigeria – the powerhouse in

the region – as the gateway to the continent… Russia should reckon with Nigeria as the central area

of focus in Africa, and take a more serious view of its longstanding ties to our end of the world.

“Our two countries share certain, striking similarities. Our two nations are among the 10 most populous

countries in the world; and are among the Top 10 in gas reserves. With a population of nearly

190 million people, Nigeria is set to surpass the United States of America as the third most populous

country in the world by 2050.

“In terms of diversity, Russia at 190 ethnic groupings is not too far behind Nigeria’s 250… With Russia and Nigeria projected to be the biggest economies in Europe and Africa respectively in just three decades from now, it would be a travesty if we did not strive to strengthen cooperation and partnership to reap the gains in terms of GDP growth.

“Ours is the second largest film industry in the world; and contemporary Nigerian music has gone global. I would not be surprised if Nigerian stars like Timaya, WizKid, Davido or Tiwa Savage are selling out concert halls in Moscow or St. Petersburg very soon, as they have been doing in major cities around the world.”
