In his decision to give back to society and appreciate God for sparing his life to the advance age of 75, elder statesman and Juju Music icon, Evangelist (Professor) Ebenezer Obey-Fabiyi (MFR)  has established a music foundation and training institute that will give direction to millions of Nigerian youths seeking to become professional instrumentalists and musicians in the nearest futute.
Speaking during the launching of the foundation inside the OOPL Marquees Events Center situated inside Obasanjo Presidential Library—Abeokuta, last Monday, April 3, Ebenezer Obey who clocked 75 years on that day told a gathering of eminent guests that his decision to establish the foundation was borne out of the need to ‘give back to humanity at this age’.

Read the full details below.  

The Vision
Evangelist (Professor) Ebenezer Obey, founder, Ebenezer Obey Music Foundation & Training Institute
Ebenezer Obey Music Foundation and Training Institute is a private initiative of Evangelist (Professor) Ebenezer Obey, Chief Executive of Decross International Gospel Ministries. It is born out of a vision to primarily impact and empower the teeming youths, the younger generation, that constitutes the greater percentage of Nigeria’s population on one hand and others who desire music training to equip them to be responsible citizens of our great nation—Nigeria”.
Habakkuk 2:2...'The vision if written down will come at it's own time'
“To achieve the objective, the foundation is committed to a policy of providing the best music education and training for the greatest number, and thorough training of each individual in the shortest time possible in accordance with internationally acknowledged and accepted best practices in every area of it’s operation”
The Goal of the Institute
Evangelist (Prof.) Ebenezer Obey....'A man with a large heart for the incoming generation of Music entrepreneurs'
“The goal of the music foundation is to give equal opportunity for all in every aspect of its operation. To this effect, the foundation shall not discriminate on the basis of sex, age, religion, national origin, marital status or handicap.

The scheme shall focus on training beneficiaries for professionalism in Music through performance. The administration of the foundation will concern itself with every aspect of artistic excellence and within a lively, lovely, supportive and conducive environment in a closely knit community. The foundation is poised to operate a school system whereby the major academic units will be independent to carry out its activities under a central administration”.
Why we choose Lafenwa as Location
Evangelist (Prof.) Ebenezer Obey....'Abeokuta is the nostalgic town of his greater dream'
“The Music Foundation and Training Institute situates at RICC Km 4, Aiyetoro Road, Lafenwa, Abeokuta. Locating this in Abeokuta our historic gateway city of 1830 is strategic for two reasons: (1) It is the town of my youth where my musical potential was birthed, to which I am nostalgically attached. (2) It’s geographical location makes it easily accessible to Lagos, our national commercial and industrial hub—104 kilometers away, while Ibadan the cosmopolitan Yoruba political hub—is 77 kilometers away”
The Programmes & affiliations in detail
Evangelist (Prof.) Obey....A man with the will to help a new generation
The equal opportunity programe of the foundation is guided by Nigerian National Policy on Education (NPE) and international best practices in skills and intellectual acquisition. This is accomplished through streamed programmes which is categorized into three:

I.                   A six months, nine months, 12 months and three years full time programme.
II.                 Six Weeks, Nine Weeks and twelve weeks crash programmes and
III.              Weekend Programme which runs for 26, 52 and 104 weeks respectively.
“The institute is operative within an established affiliation with Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU) for standardization and accreditation purpose. It’s under a Governing Board chaired by an erudite, scholarly Professor of renown to ensure adherence to international best practices in intellectual and administrative delivery”.
Our Major Aim & Purpose
Obey....Giving back the vision of youth age to new generation youths
“This is a Youth Empowerment Programme to give direction to our nation’s teeming youth population. It is an institute that national and international corporate bodies and individuals can support and invest”.
“I therefore call on well-meaning Nigerians, international and National corporate bodies and organizations to be part of this project for posterity”.
Conclusion
Evangelist (Professor) Ebenezer Obey Fabiyi (MFR)
“I want to use this opportunity to appreciate all of you here present, especially  the Father of the day, former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Aremu Okikiola Obasanjo (GCFR). Our amiable Chief host, His Excellency, Senator Ibikunle Amosun CON, FCA. The Chief Launcher, Sir Adebukola Adebutu Kessinghton CON, other distinguished state Governors, Senators, Members of the National Assembly, Members of Ogun and Lagos States House of Assembly, Royal Fathers and Captain of Industry.
 Thank you and God bless.
