It is an important opportunity for us to interact with and listen to the people on whose behalf we work. COSON continues to take giant strides across the nation and across the world. One of the key reasons for the rapid growth of COSON and the significant stability that this great organization enjoys is that COSON is stakeholder driven. The COSON Stakeholders’ Forum has been held several times in Lagos, Abuja, Onitsha, Owerri, etc. Through a network of activists and consultants, COSON strives to make an impact across the country. We are going to Ibadan to ensure that the COSON revolution continues to inspire and energize the music industry and to make great impact in the national economy especially in the South Western part of our nation”.
