While speaking at the event, Mr Deji Irawo, the brain behind X2D TV knelt pleading with music acts to stop the fight because the future of the moral uprightness of the coming generations depends on them. He noted that the spate of obscenity in the media is high hence, the gospel acts have no choice to work harder and churn out quality productions that can in no small way contribute positively to the lives of the younger generation.
