In his recent trip to his father’s birthplace, Jidenna launched a scholarship in Computer Engineering at the Enugu State University.
The scholarship is named after Jidenna’s father, the late Professor Oliver Mobisson, and Jidenna launched it with his sister.
At the launch, Jidenna said that his father “worked with professors and students of this institution (Enugu State University) to create the first commercially produced personal computer, here in this university.”
The launch of the scholarship was a part of his trip to Enugu, where he said, “That’s the town I grew up in. I’m from a state called Imo state but I actually grew up in Enugu… this is like that kind of hometown feeling when I go back.”
