Lagos High School Music Challenge Kicks off

High school students and lovers of live music are in for exciting times as a novel Lagos High School Music Challenge (LHSMC) kicks off.  LHSMC is a unique music contest aimed at harnessing music talents among children and teenagers in the state while empowering and offering early guidance into the ever growing and exciting world of live music. 

 The program which is opened to secondary students in Lagos will officially debut on the 20th of June, 2018 at t the Multi- Purpose Hall, EKO FM, Agidingbi, Ikeja, Lagos with over thirty contestants vying   for honors and various goodies up for grabs

The executive producer of the show, Biodun Kupoluyi , the Chief Executive Officer,  Entertainment Media Limited, explained that “the appalling trend of parading music illiterates as the elites of Nigerian music pushed us as an organization to birth this idea. The rich musical history that King Sunny Ade,  Fela, Dan Maraya Jos, Bala Miller, IK Cairo, Ebenezer Obey, Osita Osadebe, Oliver De Coque, and all the other great legends toiled to build is gradually eroding, dying and that is why we decided to face the next generation to help arrest the situation."  

Checks on the official website of the competition,  www., shows that registration closed Thursday, 14 July 2018 and the excitements among school pupils, music instructors and parents is high. 
Organizers say schools have since began rehearsals for the competition that will parade 14 of the 26 bands eliminated during the first round leaving the remaining contestants to face the battle in front of a panel of industry experts for the second round.

The 12 qualified bands in the First Round tagged Knockout Series as well as winners in Solo-Face-Off  will move up to this year’s Grand Finale set for June 21 which coincides with the globally celebrated World Music Day.
