EMUfest 2010 was a blast! We had a lot of fun in Ife, Osogbo and Ibadan. On Saturday, November 27, about 6000 students came out to the evening concert which ran from 4pm to 9pm in Ife. The festival train rolled late into Osogbo that night and music fans from far-flung places danced non-stop at the all-night concert. In Ibadan the next day, 80 children drawn from three primary schools presented an amazing evening of folk songs at the University of Ibadan to conclude the festival.
