OAU’s Department of Music will bestow the legendary musician with an award of the Fellow of the School of Music on Wednesday, 20 March 2019.
The 43-year-old superstar took to his Instagram page Monday to share the news with his over 4 million followers.
“The great people of OAU will on Wednesday, confer on me the award of the fellow of the school of music. I will also be delivering a public lecture. Industry meets Academia.
Grateful for the honour.”
