Hospitality can be described as hosting one’s guests and providing a welcome and wholesome environment for them. It is an important aspect of the society, as it promotes relationship building. In business, it definitely has a positive impact on profits!
However, the focus today is the importance of hospitality in the entertainment industry, in particular its impact on artists.
In the African setting, our artists have come to mean a lot to us, as they provide a welcome source of entertainment and invariably relaxation through the expression of their talents- music, movies , poetry etc. This has encouraged the rise of Hospitality services in Afro-tainment industry “VickieRobert Hospitality UK & Ireland” (VRH) is headed by Vickie Robert, a dual Registered Nurse based in the UK with burning passion for Artists health.
VRH aims to ensure that African artists, who are the source of our relaxation, are not only appreciated but are also provided with the best services to make them comfortable while on tour. VRH services are tailored specifically to suit artists’ needs while on tour/during premieres. The reason is not far-fetched, artists have a very demanding and sometimes stressful schedules; ranging from constant travel, meeting tight deadlines of tours, rehearsals, costume fittings and of course make up.
Thus, if artists do not have the right kind of care in place, they can develop life threatening conditions ranging from Deep vein thrombosis, Acute stress disorder, eating disorders to the “silent killer” High blood pressure – which was suspected to be the cause of death of our very own and internationally acclaimed Artist -Goldie Harvey- continue to R.I.P dear Goldie…
After returning home to Nigeria from the 2013 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California, she complained of a headache and was rushed to hospital where she was later pronounced dead.It was revealed through an autopsy, conducted by The Department of Pathology and Forensic Medicine of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, that the Nigerian pop star died of ‘hypertensive heart disease,’ which triggered an “intra-cerebellar hemorrhage.” Goldie, 29 years old at the time of her death,was laid to rest at the Vaults and Gardens, Ikoyi, Lagos.
VRH services range from basic health checks such as blood pressure check, Diabetic monitoring, Massage, provision of light refreshment compatible with Artists’ schedule etc…
