Today, many musicians and artistes are doing well in their niche, he said.

While asking schools to enhance their academies by including professional courses to develop different abilities of students, the legislator said music was one such subject that should be included. It has merits such as its disciplining and communicative attributes, among others.

He acknowledged the family of late Rev. Dr. Neiliezhü Üsou’s family members for instituting the award not just to carry forward the legacy left behind by their father but also to motivate young students to excel in music and promote the field.
