Interim PMAN President, Kevin Lucianno has addressed rumors alleging that he plans to extend his stay in office beyond October 29 next year.
While speaking with Encomium during a PMAN event in Ikeja, Lagos, the record label exec disclosed he has no intention to contest PMAN presidency.
“Right now, we are trying to do our best for Nigerian artistes. By now, PMAN should have a radio station to promote works of our members. We were talking about Alaba as our biggest problem in terms of piracy, but today, the digital music download is our headache; who is regulating the operators? These are things we have been trying to resolve. However, I have no plans to stay in office beyond my mandate.”
He continued: “My work here is to build a structure for the union and create an avenue for a credible election for another person to carry on. I have a lot of other things to do; I have my family to take care of.”
To him, the generational gap remains a major problem in PMAN.
“There’s a huge generational gap in the music industry; PMAN has always been for the older artistes. I would appreciate that younger artistes would come and dominate the association; this industry is for them.”
