    UNILAG Sets to Holds 11th Edition of Africa Sings

    The Creative Arts Department of the University of Lagos has announced the 11th edition of its annual concert, Africa Sings.

    The event, scheduled for Monday, July 15th, will take place at the UniLag Main Auditorium. The program will commence at 3:00 p.m.

    The Music Director, Professor Albert Oikelome, described Africa Sings as a comprehensive concert program presented by the Department of Creative Arts at the University of Lagos. This program is dedicated to showcasing the exceptional talents of our students in choral music, as well as celebrating the rich musical heritage of Africa and the diaspora.


    In reference to the musical heritage of Nigeria, the esteemed music scholar emphasized that Nigeria, being the most populous nation in Africa, is blessed with a rich musical tradition that encompasses both popular and traditional genres. Over the years, concerted efforts have been undertaken to safeguard these musical forms from the threat of extinction.

    “Consequently, the concert aims to revitalize classic songs within the contemporary context. Each group rekindles the traditional genres through choral arrangements and subsequently endeavors to reconfigure them with trending contemporary musical rhythms”.
