Award-winning Nigerian musician, producer, and songwriter, Cobhams Asuquo has been appointed as the National Ambassador to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

UNICEF Nigeria Representative, Mr. Peter Hawkins, made the announcement in a statement made available to newsmen in Kaduna on Wednesday.

According to Hawkins, the appointment made Cobhams the first National Ambassador of UNICEF Nigeria in the last 15 years.

Hawkins explained that as UNICEF National Ambassador, Asuquo would help raise awareness on concerns around children’s rights and solutions.

He will also play a vital role in issues concerning birth registration, immunization, education, and protection from violence.

“I am delighted to welcome Asuquo to the UNICEF family, particularly on Nigerian Children’s Day, dedicated to every Nigerian child, to give them a better place to survive, thrive, and develop.

“May 27 was set aside to celebrate the importance of children in Nigeria, providing the opportunity to policymakers and families to focus on the holistic development of young Nigerians.

“He had supported UNICEF Nigeria’s work since 2019, including producing the hits “I am a Nigeria Child (For Every Child)” calling for every Nigerian child’s rights to be respected and protected.

“He also produced the song, “We go Win (Corona)”, to raise awareness on how Nigerians can protect themselves from COVID-19.

“Asuquo had also produced the song “Tell Everybody”, back in 2015 to raise awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals, as part of the UN Global Goals campaign,” Hawkins said.

The UNICEF representative expressed optimism that the national ambassador would continue to use his singing, passion and dedication to defending the rights of vulnerable children and young people in Nigeria.

“I am passionate about children’s rights, and I am passionate about Nigeria – and securing its future, and the only way we can truly do that is through ensuring every child fulfilled their potential.

“I look forward to making my contribution to the improvement of the lives of Nigerian children and young people.”
