PRESS RELEASE



The Alluring Narrative of Tonye Princewill (Part2)
 By Nwaorgu Faustinus

Apart from the role he played during the first ever musical reality show for orphanages organised by Melody Shelters in collaboration with Adonis Productions, to being a major facilitator of NNENDA, 


Prince Tonye has nonetheless showed unwavering love to the youth, indigent undergraduates, and rural women among others. For instance, in June 2012, Prince Tonye sponsored ten Nigerian youths from the “Change Nigeria Group (CNG)” on a tour of South Africa and Dubai where the youths met with members of UAE royal family, institutional investors and leaders from far and wide so that they could find for themselves the secrets of their success.

In the educational sector, he has through his brainchild – Princewill Trust Fund sponsored the annual Amachree Scholarship Fund for poor students from the 23 LGA’s in Rivers State and about 150 Rivers indigenes in higher institutions in Nigeria. In furtherance of his acts of charity, he donated 23million naira Skill Acquisition Scheme to LGA’s for the training of rural women in the state by empowering them via skill acquisition programme to uphold the saying “do not give me fish but teach me how to fish”. Relatedly, he facilitated the sponsorship of the likes of Miss Mercy Akudo in Acting, Mr Valentine Ohu in Broadcast Journalism, Stanley Kotey in 3D Graphics, Crystabel Goddy in Acting and Telema Senibo in 3D Graphics to the Del-York Film Academy. Today, these youths are proud owners of multi-million naira equipped studios.

It is therefore imperative at this junction to enumerate some of the commendable deeds of this man to humanity as captured by one Chief Chukwueme Eze a media consultant based in Port Harcourt.

- Assisted his alma-mata UNIPORT Alumni when he donated the sum of N5M to the Leadership of Engr. Sampson N. Adumu led Exco to aid them in their activities during the launching of the Association in Port Harcourt on July, 2012.

- Sponsored and organized football competitions with some past football stars based in Port Harcourt, female and U-18 Soccer Tournaments in his drive to continue to give succor to our youths.

- Recently intervened and assisted people in Rivers and Bayelsa States that were affected by the damaging floods in the land.
- Has touched hundreds of the lives of the widows in Rivers State through his “New Life For the Widows in Rivers State”

- He followed it up with the premiering of the International award winning “The Figurine” anchored by the famous Kunle Afolayan in 11thOctober, 2009 at the Silver Bird Cinemas, Port Harcourt. This movie was the second Nigerian movie to hit box office status after Stephanie Okereke’s ‘Through the Glass’.

- The Prince premiered Kajola the most expensive film ever produced in Nigeria at the silver bird cinema Abuja on 3oth july, 2010 with a whooping production cost of One Hundred and thirty Million Naira (N130M) The plot of the movie set in Nigeria 2059, which is expected to appeal to all Nigerians in the sense that it explores the implications of the continuous neglect of the poor and the widening gulf between the rich and poor and the ensuing catastrophic outcomes stemming from such neglect.

- He is currently sponsoring the production of the first movie in Nigeria on celluoid Camera titled “76” hinged and anchored on the coup of 1976 in Nigeria aimed at recreating history for the incoming generation and preserving a remarkable part of the history of our nation. The post production is on-going in Germany. The second is Valor, a movie that deals with the Niger Delta and Boko Haram issues and is also at post production stage.

- The RIVMAP which is the brainchild of Prince Tonye Princewill to serve as a platform for the emancipation of our youths from poverty and hopelessness by discovering, nurturing and grooming talent in the arts to stardom had during its inaugural outing that cost him the sum of N20M had Mr. Timi Julius carting away the N5M Record Deal in Music with the Dancing group of the Thrillers winning the N2M Prize in the Dancing Group and Mr. Jacob John a Welder/Fabricator based in Port Harcourt from Akwa Ibom winning the N1M meant for the Comedy group.

Away from the above, Prince Tonye played a praise-worthy part in the resolution of the Buguma crisis that engulfed the ancient city. For him, it was the Buguma crisis that made him get involved in Rivers State politics. He was a member of the Niger Delta Committee who drew up the Niger Delta Technical Committee Report during the heydays of militancy in the Niger/Delta region, before amnesty was granted the freedom fighters but nothing much was done about it on the part of the FG by way of implementing it (the report) to the last letter. At the time he held sway as the sub-Committee Chairman of the Niger Delta Subcommittee on Vision 2020 set up by the late President, Umar Yar’Ardua, Princewill did what most present crop of politicians would not have done by resigning his position - Sub-committee Chair of the Niger Delta Subcommittee as a result of the bombardment of Guaramatu Kingdom by Federal Government forces to demonstrate his protest.

As a thoughtful democrat, Prince Tonye has billboards located at strategic points in Port Harcourt with different soul-searching and thought provoking inscriptions which include; “Have a forgiving spirit …. We all make mistakes, that’s why pencils have erasers”, “remember the youths because the young shall grow”, “remember the elderly because you too will grow old”, “you are blessed to bless others”, “free food dey run bele, work for your money”, “if you truly believe, the unbelievable becomes not only possible but popular” etc.

From the foregoing, it is clear that this humane business mogul cum politician has lived up to some of the inscriptions captured in his billboards even though he does not hold any political post. Keep up the good work you are doing.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
