It was undoubtedly another night of heavenly music as new graduates of the MTN Foundation-MUSON Scholar’s Programme commemorated the conclusion of their two-year music programme with a vibrant musical concert.
The event, which marked the 15th edition of the graduation ceremony, was exciting for everyone in attendance as they saw the introduction of new musical professionals to the world. This year’s graduation concert held on Monday, July 4, 2022, featuring an array of captivating musical acts for the engaged crowd.
MTN Foundation Music Scholars brought to the stage their distinctive styles, with musical performances by foreign and Nigerian acts such as Oluwa Iwo Lo Ti N Se Ibujoko Wa by Ayo Oluranti; Ekwe by Onyeka Onwenu and Smile by Charlie Chaplin. The excellent performance of He lives in You by Mark Manchina and Lebo M by the MUSON choir was perhaps the musical performance of the evening that most riveted the hearts of music fans.
During the two-year music program, the young scholars received top-notch training in both major and minor music theory, as well as the fundamentals of the genre. They have consciously assumed the role of being the music of Nigeria’s future.
