EFCC Money Sprayers and Entertainment bands, Hmmm! This got me brooding seriously. Who bears the burden of this EFCC’s renewed vigour in chasing those spraying money? 

In Nigeria, there is never a week that passes without an owanbe party.


And entertainment banks are indeed cashing out. All they need is go arond and copy names of people at the event. 

Money Sprayers Affect Entertainment Bands in Nigeria
Money Sprayers

The Ariyas and Alujos of Owanbe Party, as the band leaders, have special skills in ‘swelling’ the heads of those they are entertaining. Those whose egos are bruised in turn spray them with different currencies, either naira or dollars.

While some people choose to utilize DJs, others don’t think twice about hiring a live band.

Financial Strain: The Burden Of Legal Risks On Entertainment Bands

For entertainment bands relying on performances at events where money spraying occurs, the crackdown of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) poses significant financial risks.


Bands may find themselves caught in the crossfire of legal scrutiny, facing potential fines or penalties if found to be complicit in money laundering activities.

As a result, many bands are now grappling with the prospect of decreased bookings and revenue streams, leading to financial strain and uncertainty about their future in the industry.

Changing Dynamics: Adaptation Strategies In The Wake Of EFCC’s Crackdown

Facing heightened EFCC scrutiny, entertainment bands must change their business models and performance strategies.

Some bands may choose to distance themselves from events where money spraying is prevalent, opting instead to focus on venues and gigs with lower legal risks.


Also, some other bands may want to include Dj skills into their portfolios for the obvious fact that Djs hardly get sprayed at any event, hence no fear of ‘EFCC Money Sprayers’ palaver.

Others may explore alternative revenue streams or diversify their offerings to mitigate the impact of decreased bookings.


However, these adaptation strategies come with their own set of challenges and may require bands to rethink their approach to the entertainment business.
