In the recent past, Sheila Gashumba has been the bridge between West African music with Nigeria in particular and the Ugandan audience a reason for the high penetration of Nigerian music into the Ugandan market.
Well, it looks like Sheilah Gashumba is now very ready to even make her game better.
The NBS After 5 co-host enrolled at the Music Business Academy for Africa and was quick to make an announcement on her social media platforms. “Excited to have enrolled for #MBAforAfrica22 . I’ve always followed my passion in life and the music business is one of them. Super excited ❤️” She posted.

The Music Business Academy for Africa is a platform dedicated to developing a more informed and empowered workforce for the African Music and Entertainment industry.
MBA for Africa started as an Internship Programme in 2017 and then became a Talent Management Training Programme. As music from the African continent continued to penetrate global markets, we saw an increase in interest in music business education, and the Music Business Academy for Africa was born in 2020.
Our mission is to develop a foolproof vocational program that is adapted to the African market but with a clear understanding of global best practices. This is why we brought in some of the best brains in the business as faculty.
From business owners to country managers and marketing managers for some of Africa’s emerging businesses, we are building an army of informed, empowered and competent people for Africa’s creative industries.
