We are very appreciative of it all. As one of the major names from the South South Niger Delta region, together we have led, embarked and executed major projects that ultimately shined lights on me and my career, understand and know that I value your contribution in bringing a part of my dreams to fruition.
Your dedication to work, desire to experiment and find new ways of achieving goals, out of the box thinking and personal involvement is unparalleled. It will not be an exaggeration if I say that you are a great captain and that without your efforts, understanding and compromise, maybe I might not have been able to complete and achieve in time most of what I have done and with this kind of quality.
I am grateful to have had you at my corner this many years and I will forever be a part of the EMIRATE RECORDS FAMILY. I hope to see the company and its people grow continuously that’s my prayer for the CEO and company that has housed help shoot me to limelight.
