Entertainment pundits have questioned whether the Management members of Nigerian child comedian, Emmanuella are ready to face the law over child labour.

Their argument was based on the age of the little girl who was airlifted to perform in Ghana.

However, a legal practitioner Kwasi Kankam of Asempa Chambers commenting on the issue on J. Life Fm said there is nothing wrong for Emmanuella to be airlifted to stage a comedy if her management passed through the right process.

“The labour act of Nigeria needs to be interpreted before judging whether it is wrong or not. Her parents need to sign everything on her behalf before she attains the age of 18,” he told Mr. Lattus on Entertainment Chat Show.

According to him, the Ghana High Commission in Nigeria would not have granted her the visa to travel to Ghana if her management failed to do what is required.

He advised those who have issues with the young comedian’s visit to Ghana to read the labour act of Nigeria before passing comments.

“Child labour in Nigeria is the employment of children under the age of 18 in a manner that restrict or prevent them from basic education and development. Child labour is pervasive in every state of the country,” a section of Nigeria’s child labour act read.
