Popular music maestro and ace entertainer, Bongos Ikwue has been appointed as the new chairman of the Nigerian Film Corporation, (NFC) board.

The veteran artiste was recently appointed by President Goodluck Jonathan to head the film corporation board.

His appointment comes after several movie practitioners boycotted a media parley organised by the Nigerian Film corporation recently to show their lack of confidence in the film corporation’s newly-appointed MD, Danjuma Dadu.

70 year old Bongos is legendary for his music, especially for the creation of the soundtrack of popular TV drama series Cock Crow at Dawn.
