Chief Tony Okoroji, chairman of COSON and key driver of the COSON Week, during the unveiling, reassured that no one would attend a COSON Week event and not remember it for the rest of his life.
According to Okoroji, “In everything we do, we make every effort to be creative and original. While we study what others are doing, we do not recycle what is out there. We set the trend”
Speaking further, Chief Okoroji said, “The planning and logistics of the COSON Week are mind boggling. I therefore call on all those partnering us: sponsors, advertisers, artistes, broadcasters, designers, technicians, etc. to get on board immediately as there is no time to waste any more. This is the time to jointly make history.”
COSON has members and affiliates practically in all the foremost music stars across the country with fans across all age brackets.
