3 PREDICTIONS ABOUT THE NIGERIAN RECORDED MUSIC INDUSTRY IN 2020

2019 was an eventful year for the Nigerian recorded music industry. We saw some major international mainstream cross overs from Nigerian artists, foreign investment and partnerships with music companies, as well as continued growth in music streaming across the board. A lot of articles documenting the various highlights of the year are already out there, so here are three predictions about the Nigerian recorded music business for 2020. 1. New Wizkid Solo Project Wizkid has had an interesting couple of years. On the one hand he has barely put out any solo music (singles/projects), but on the other his brand — primarily through non-music related activities — has been growing from strength to strength — meaning his lack of solo music releases has not affected his relevance or standing.

These days we get a lot of “wannabe” artists who just pop out from no where with the inspiration from God knows where that they have the gift of music in them….    read more 

A GROWING DIGITAL MUSIC MARKET

March 27, 2019 |

The music industry went to great lengths at the beginning of the century to put a stop to online piracy; however, they were not equally ambitious and innovative in developing new models for legal online distribution. Certainly, there were a few feeble attempts from the major record labels at the time, but the most important criterion in the development of these services seemed to be that they should not in any way threaten the existing revenue streams but should only add additional revenue to the companies. The majors did succeed with one of their goals, which is that the new services should not compete with the existing physical sales. However, unfortunately the services could not compete with anything, especially not with online piracy. The first company that was able to create a successful online service for legal sales and distribution of music was not a music industry player at all—it…    read more
