I’m a kingmaker – Duncan Mighty
Fondly referred to as Port Harcourt’s first son, Duncan Okechukwu aka Duncan Mighty has said that he sees himself as a music activist and kingmaker.
Speaking with Sunday Scoop, he said, “I believe that a rich man in the midst of poor people is not really wealthy. I have a passion for helping my fellow artistes, especially those in the South-South, and that is what I devote a lot of my time to. Inasmuch as God has blessed me, it is only proper for me to spread the blessing around by bringing up other talented ones out there who do not have the opportunity. My house is a Mecca of sorts as many artistes often come around me. We sit down and strategise on how to do things better and even develop the industry.”
The singer also explained the motive behind the recent Peace, Unity and Love Walk which he organised in Port Harcourt. “We have a body called the Port Harcourt Entertainment Forum which is a congregation of all entertainers in the state. I believe we are strongest when united and that is why I always canvass that we should come together and help each other. Singers, actors, directors, producers and other entertainers need one another and it is important for us to stand together in solidarity. That is the essence of the walk and also to promote peace in Rivers State,” he said.
