Makurdi the Benue State capital will forever remember the 7th Day of May 2017, as Seven(7) Visual Artists took the Stage alongside Seven(7) artistes( Musicians) at the CBN Entreprepreeurship Centre.

The event tagged Prophetic arts industry night concert (ART RECOVERY CONCERT) is aimed at uniting the creative industry in Benue. Merging music, fine arts, comedy and fashion on one stage. Speaking with the pioneer of the event, and he CEO of prophetic ART Gallery, he said the theme for this year's edition "Arts recovery" was inspired by his concern for the level at which arts in Benue State has become almost irrelevant ,making most Benue based fine artists to run to other states where they could be appreciated.

As the saying goes, the first stage to recovery is discovery of what you have lost. Realizing this, Six(6) Benue artists outside of the state (Prophetic Arts, Silas Onoja, Asom James, Uche, Annie jay and kayria Godwins) and “a major general” in the Nigerian arts industry; Kingdiah making it Seven, came together with seven musicians( Kole Williams, ElJoe, Doshai, Oase, Dankon, Ybitz and Isaac praise) performing back to back; an artist and a musician performing together.

Other aspects of Arts were not left out as there were fashion display by CBrain Stitches and Katerah Couture, dance by agape stepsz and sections for comedy.

It was a great night indeed and this movement is going to different states in Nigeria with Awka, Anambra State as the next point of call.
