Hello Dear Friend,
We trust that you are doing great today.
We are set to reward Nigeria’s best songwriter in an online contest.
As our developmental contribution to engender respect for copyrights in the creative industry, we have declared open a songwriting contest with mouthwatering prizes for Nigerian music talents.
The month-long online based competition which will begin on 12th of September, 2020, would end on 12th of October, 2020. We have lined up as jury popular Nigerian musicians and songwriting wizards including Johnny Drille, Blackjerzee, Obinna Agwu, and Timi Dakolo, among others.
The best songwriting talent will walk home in a winner-takes-all reward of N100,000 cash prize, in addition to other freebies including a photo session, production, and legal consultation with a reputable entertainment lawyer.
According to Akinyemi Ayinoluwa, the convener who is a top-rated creative industry influencer and music lawyer, the competition has a goal to impact positively on the music ecosystem. He revealed, “To support the empowerment of songwriters across the country with financial resources, education, networking opportunities, mentorship, and advocacy. This competition will draw attention to the importance of songwriting as an art and profession.”
To qualify, organizers revealed that interested participants must be Nigerians, living in Nigeria, and they are expected to share a 90 second video entry of an original song they wrote. The song must have a message, must have a chorus or hook, and a verse. The entry will be published on instagram with the hashtag #securedabag #greysagesongwritercontest and contestants must follow @greysagehq.
The songwriting contest is another installment in a series of creative industry interventions by Greysage Consulting which establishes it firmly as one of the critical stakeholders in the music subset of the ecosystem.
