Posted by on September 4th, 2016 Under ENTERTAINMENT, SCHOLARSHIP


Nigerian-born American rap artiste, Jidenna Mobisson and his sister, Nneka, have endowed a scholarship in Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT), named after their late father, Professor Oliver Mobisson.

The late Professor Mobisson was one of the pioneer lecturers at old Anambra State University of Science and Technology (ASUTECH), the parent University of ESUT.

While in the university, Professor Mobisson, working with other Professors in Department of Computer Science and students, invented the ASUTECH computer, the first commercially produced personal computer in West Africa.

Speaking at the scholarship endowment ceremony at ESUT permanent site Agbani on yesterday, Jidenna Mobisson recalled that when his father invented a personal computer, nobody believed that an African could do such a thing.

“This will be done in honour of those who are making sure things are done in Enugu” Jidenna said.
