Nigerian rapper and hip-hop recording artiste, Tobechukwu Ejiofor a.k.a IllBliss has released a video documentary ‘The Hero’s Walk,’ spotlighting the Igbo apprenticeship system.
The rapper took to his official Twitter account @illblissgoretti on Thursday to share the video.
According to him, the system had built wealth for many, economic growth for communities and a model for entrepreneurship.
“We are telling our stories. The “imu Ahia” program has crowned so many billionaires and built empires. This is a huge part of our legacy,” he tweeted.
Ejiofor noted that over the years, the model of entrepreneurship training had formed an integral part of the culture and tradition of the Igbo people, which had continued to inspire other regions.
The video starred movie legend Nkem Owoh (Osuofia) who described Igbo people as unique and hardworking people in terms of entrepreneurship.
It also features top Igbo entrepreneurs as they discuss how the apprenticeship practice known as ‘Imu Ahia’ contributed to the building of business empires.
