Davido inaugurate Faculty of Music and Arts in Uganda

On March 28, Davido, a Nigerian pop sensation, officially opened the Faculty of Music and Arts at the International University of East Africa (IUEA) in Kampala, Uganda.

Through images and videos posted to his Instagram account, the musician revealed the project. His goal is to develop creative potential and innovate in new media, entertainment, and music. This initiative is a part of that ambition. A variety of stakeholders, including students, supporters, and university officials, attended the inauguration ceremony.

Davido is adding to his expanding list of charitable endeavors in East Africa with his visit to Uganda, which will finish with a concert in the country’s capital, Kampala, this coming weekend. During a 2018 trip of the area, the performer gave $5,000 to a Rwandan music school.

Relocating to Nigeria, the three-time Grammy nominee has consistently donated ₦787 million (about $600 000) to orphans through his David Adeleke Foundation. His charitable endeavors include student scholarships, COVID-19 research, and operations.

We are proud to offer courses in entertainment law, music publishing, event management, influencer management and other related fields.

The groundbreaking ceremony was graced by Davido Adeleke, and I commend all parties involved. It is our collective responsibility to create more job opportunities for the youth of Africa, and through the field of entertainment, we aim to achieve this goal.

– IUEA entertainment and sports representative Christian Kamanya said.

In 2010 the IUEA was established as a private, non-profit university. The new faculty will act as a center for collaboration in addition to offering academic programs. It will give students the chance to interact with professionals in the field, participate in workshops, and present their skills locally and internationally. In addition, Davido has a hall named after him on the university campus.
