Fuji superstar, Chief Wasiu Ayinde (K1 D Ultimate) has called on the Federal Government to reintroduce music in the country’s school curriculum. K1 recently made the plea at the Lagos State University during the final of the National Inter-School Music Competition Iba Local Council Development Area hosted by the council.
The fuji star said he was impressed by the performances of the students in music and other art forms.
“I’m very proud of Nigerian students, especially at this level. Government at all levels should quickly do something to re-introduce music in our educational system,” K1 advised. In an address delivered at the event, Mrs. Ramota Adeyeri-Oseni, Chairman, Iba Local Council Development Area of Lagos State, also called on the Federal Government to encourage the development of music among students.
“Music is generally believed to be a major moral tool against vices in our society and it also helps children to control their emotions while coping with difficult situations such as peer group and life pressures,” Adeyeri-Oseni posited.
She disclosed that her administration is committed to programmes that will help discover talents in youths, hence its decision to participate in the National Inter-School Music Competition.
Winners from individual category at the event, which was co-sponsored by Coca-cola, were Master Emy from Gozoie Group of Schools (1st), Miss Ine from Henna Tech School (2nd) and Miss Esther from MillBank Secondary School (3rd). Winners in the school category were Henna Tech School (1st), MillBank Secondary School (2nd) and Cinac Royal College (3rd).
