According to him, “Well, the idea has always been part of me for a very long time and people close to me do say that i am a very hospitable person, so going into hotel business for me is just a dream come through. It called Prime Stone and it is not just an hotel,the concept is to make it an entertainment hub. An home away from home and relaxation facility for artistes and celebrities in Nigeria. We also offer platform for upcoming artistes and talented youths to express themselves at a monthly Talent exhibition show to be hosted by the hotel.
I didn’t just start building the hotel, Its an acquired structure, we only rebuilt to our taste ,the dream is big,but we’re starting somewhere and we hope to become a brand like Hilton,Sheraton and Protea that will be taking over the management of hotels in strategic locations within the country very soon.
Our Unique selling point is that all our hotels will be a meeting point of hospitality and entertainment. The project started months ago and its still ongoing. Presently running skeletal services, the official opening comes up in June 2016 but we will be having series of hostings and all so as to meet up with our customers’ expectations. I must say this, being a movie maker To promote and support movie production,our facilities come at about 25% discount for all movie productions. Its an investment and fund was raised for it like every other business. The structure and facilities speaks for its self”, Damola explained.
