MTN Foundation donates music studio and instruments to MUSON music school

The MTN Foundation, in its attempt to support the creative arts in Nigeria, recently commissioned a music studio and donated musical instruments to the MUSON School of Music. Since 2006, the Foundation, in partnership with MUSON, has fully funded and developed over 350 music scholars, providing scholarships for a two-year degree.

The awards cover, among other things, tuition, transportation and resource materials, after which students receive an internationally recognized music diploma upon graduation. “Talent is one thing. But when you have the right environment, it enables talent. We want you to wake up every morning and ask yourself: what are you doing today? And when you do that, you become more intentional,” said Odunayo Sanya, Executive Secretary of MTN Foundation.
