UN appoint Cobhams Asuquo as National Ambassador

Nigerian musician, producer and songwriter, Cobhams Asuquo has been appointed by the United Nations Children Emergency Fund (UNICEF), as its National Ambassador.

UNICEF Nigeria Representative, Peter Hawkins, announced this in a statement.

Cobhams has become UNICEF Nigeria’s first National Ambassador in the last 15 years.

The musician would help raise awareness on concerns around children’s rights and solutions, including issues around birth registration, immunization, education and protection from violence.

The statement recalled that Asuquo had been supporting UNICEF to raise awareness on children and youth issues.

Hawkins acknowledged his support for UNICEF Nigeria’s work since 2019, including producing ‘I am a Nigeria Child (For Every Child)’, the song promoting kids’ rights to be respected and protected.

It was also added that the hit maker also produced the song ‘We go Win (Corona)’, to raise awareness on how Nigerians can protect themselves from COVID-19.

Asuquo also produced the song ‘Tell Everybody’ back in 2015 to raise awareness on the Sustainable Development Goals, as part of the UN Global Goals campaign.

Hawkins quoted Asuquo as saying it was a huge honour to become a UNICEF Nigeria Ambassador.
