Waje, Chin Okeke, DJ Obi and some other top players in the Nigerian music industry will this June empower and inspire young aspiring minds about the art of making music in the upcoming The Dreams Workshop.

The workshop is set to connect the next generation of innovative youth in Nigeria through the universal language of music by creating new and relevant opportunities in the entertainment industry.

The workshop will also provide participants with insight and knowledge about how music is created and the best attendees will be selected for a mentorship program with each of the mentors.

The one-day workshop will feature renowned professionals in the music industry who understand the importance of music as an art form and the incredible force it carries globally. The primary aim is to inspire young aspiring creatives by producing an atmosphere for artists to share their experiences and give attendees the chance to learn about the art of making music in a more intimate session.

The Dreams Workshop, an extension of The Dreams Project, is the brainchild of Eclipse Live Africa, the producers of Gidi Fest (Gidi Culture Festival). It was born out of a passion to empower and develop the African youth.

The Dreams Workshop, which is themed ‘The Art of Creating Music’, will bring together the following A-list mentors: Chin Okeke (A&R), Chopstix (Producer), DJ Obi (DJ) and Waje (Singer/Songwriter).

The workshop will hold on Saturday, 11th June 2016.
