Due to the significant gap that exists between the children of the elites and the children living in the slum, there are high tendencies of the slum dwellers developing low self-esteem. Using the Yuletide season as an example, the children of the rich tend to be engaged in Christmas carol with so much pomp and pageantry, while the slum dwellers probably would wish and fantasize to be like them. It is on this wise that, the researcher decided to give these slum dwellers some sense of self-worth by engaging them in music that, these children from the affluent home sometimes are engaged in. The focus of this study is to provide hope to children that are socially deprived, under the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) goal 10: and reduce inequality by disproportionately affecting the poorest and most vulnerable. Makoko is a slum area in Yaba Local Government Development Area. Makoko is a poor community with inhabitants deprivedof basic necessities of life. This study examines in detail the many angles musical performance explored in a bid to help slum children become better versions of themselves.
