Omo Bello Music Foundation

The Omo Bello Music Foundation focuses on inspiring and supporting the next generation of musicians. By creating widespread awareness among youth and training children between the ages of 6 and 18 and cultivating their natural musical talents, Omo Bello opens up a world of possibility and the confidence to share their musical talents. The overall aim is to make vocal and instrumental music education – classical or otherwise – accessible to all in Nigeria as well as in Africa more broadly. Engaging children in creative projects takes them away from the streets, promotes self-esteem and agency, and can open up a range of careers in the music industry. Initiatives include visiting rural communities and schools to raise awareness of classical music, and organizing masterclasses and mentoring programmes with talented young singers and musicians. Founded by Omo Bello, an internationally acclaimed French-Nigerian soprano.
