After a tedious (or not) search, an artiste finally gets a manager who is expected to be trustworthy, efficient and diligent about the entertainment business of the artiste. However, there are grey areas the artiste needs to “sort out” in the contract before its execution. Activities Covered. The artiste needs to decide on the kind of activities the management contract shall cover. Will it cover everything the artiste does in the entertainment business or it’ll be restricted to activities in only music business. An artiste might start out as a songwriter/performer and later transition into acting/modelling. The manager might just be very capable of handling all entertainment related activities or he may just be an expert in music business, with the know-how of the film and modeling industry. It would be calamitous to hand over all entertainment related business to the manager who is only skilled in music business. The…    read more 


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. However, one can fully expect a project from him this year. The first reason for this prediction is that it has…    read more

Nigerians have always had a thing or two to argue about the meaning of some lyrical content in mainstream Nigerian music. What would we possibly say makes up good composition of music? Poetry. We only have one style of music in the mainstream Nigerian music scene and it’s called. Search for the best Nigerian songs that have rocked 2019 so far, come back and comment on what the lyrics really mean. If you can do that, you need to agree with the fact that we are not creative with our lyrics. However, not all Nigerian songs have very bad lyrical content. We have seen some contemporary musicians in Nigeria, who have been able to carve a niche for themselves and save the rest from utmost disgrace and bad names. We have the likes of Bez, Timi Dakolo, MI, SDC, Tuface and some others. They are the ones that really give…    read more

I’ve always loved music. It’s been my escape from the world when nothing seemed to make sense. I just put on my headphones and travel to the world of my favorite artists. When I’m happy, Drake helps me celebrate; when I’m sad, Coldplay cheers me up and when I’m jogging, Florence and the Machine pushes me further. Even as I’m writing this article I’m listening to my favorite Soundcloud artist Paige Joiner to set the mood. Music is the love of my life that loves me completely with no questions asked and wants nothing in return but my attention. I knew music was my soul-mate when I was twelve years old and my Dad took me to a Sean Paul concert. I became lovesick and prayed that I never got healed. The sounds in the air, the energy of the crowd, it was the first time I was lost for…    read more

The music genre, “Afro-pop” is referred to as contemporary African pop sound. This term is not streamlined to a particular style or sound. The full meaning of Afro-pop is African popular music. Loud and danceable beats with amazing hooks in any Nigerian language or our general pidgin English makes up the Nigerian Afrobeat sound. This amazing and unique sound of ours is what shakes up the streets of Lagos, and from there vibrates to the world. This unique sound is making waves globally. But, it’s important to note that things haven’t always been this way. Throwing it back to the early 1990s when Nigeria left the shambles of the military dictatorship that almost ruined our music industry. A new sound was birthed in Nigeria. Some artists like Plantashun Boiz brought a young and vibrant sound into our country. After about twenty years after, this sound of ours has travelled far…    read more
