Mr Eazi announced a partnership with Decagon, organisers of Nigeria’s top software engineering training programme,  to help brilliant young Nigerians actualise their dream of becoming software engineers. Mr Eazi will serve as a sponsor for 5 residents or indigenes of Ogun State to attend Decagon. 

Decagon recently opened applications for its 6 months training programme  which includes accommodation, feeding, laptop, internet and a monthly stipend, followed by an immediate job placement into companies like Access Bank, Sterling Bank and Etranzact after graduating.

By visiting http://applications.decagonhq.com, interested candidates  can apply before November 22nd  for this programme which doesn’t require any payment of fees until the trainees have graduated and started working and earning salaries. 

However, successful applicants are required to have a credible guarantor in order to access the Pay-Later model and this has proven difficult for some otherwise successful applicants in the past. It is due to this challenge that  Mr Eazi has decided to step in and guarantee 5 lucky ones from Ogun State, by residence or origin . 

Chika Nwobi, CEO of Decagon, says “ For some who do not have access to someone in their family or network to stand in for them, Mr. Eazi is providing a lifeline  and this is the type of collaboration that will move Nigeria forward.”

Mr. Eazi is a singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur. He is passionate about music and any program that supports emerging talent in Africa.in June 2020 Mr Eazi launched the African Music Fund (AMF) with an initial investment of $20 million dedicated to African creatives.

He recently launched the emPawa initiative to provide a hundred African artists with funding to shoot their music videos. Speaking about Decagon, he said, “I’ve always been passionate about helping young people and pushing them to be the best version of themselves. For some of them, their talents naturally align with software engineering. I am happy to support this initiative in the hopes that they can support themselves and their families.”

The deadline for this application is Sunday the 22nd of November 2020.
