COME Tuesday, May 7, the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) will inaugurate the Board of Trustees of its Music Foundation at Protea Hotel, GRA Ikeja. To chair the board is Juju music maestro, Evangelist (Dr) Ebenezer Obey Fabiyi MFR.
Other members of the board include music industry personalities as Prof (Sir) Victor Uwaifo MON JP, Erelu Keji Okunowo, Mr. Edi Lawani, Mr. Toju Ejueyitchie, Chief Osita Okeke, etc. The Board of Trustees will be responsible for the prudent management of the funds of the foundation.
Organisers say that each of the seven events of the forthcoming week is in support of the COSON Music Foundation, a non-profit trust being set up for Nigerian music and musicians. The foundation, it is hoped, will provide support for artistes in distress and also provide funding for music education.
At an event tagged, the COSON Green Ball, the Music Foundation will be formally launched on Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at the MUSON Centre in Lagos. The launch, organisers revealed, is a key objective of The COSON Week 2013, which kicks off May 19, and ends May 25 when the COSON Song Awards will be held at the New Ball Room of the Lagos Oriental Hotel.
The Tuesday event will also serve as an opportunity for the management of COSON to brief the media on the state of preparedness of the events of COSON as the trophy of the COSON Song Awards is for the first time unveiled.
