Government of the United States of America is committed to strengthening the burgeoning US-Nigeria cultural ties through music, arts, film, cultural heritage, and professional and educational exchanges
The US Mission Nigeria hosted a reception to honour the 15th Annual Headies Music Awards, which will be held for the first time in Atlanta, USA, later in the year.
Delivering remarks at the event, Ambassador Mary Leonard applauded the growing ties between the two countries in the creative industry.
She explained that the choice of Atlanta to host the Headies symbolised the growing relationship between the music industries in the US and Nigeria.
In his welcoming remarks, the acting US Consul General, Brandon Hudspeth, added that cultural and artistic exchanges are just one way by which the US partners with the people and government of Nigeria.
