Royalties and Music Revenue Sharing Formula in Nigeria!

Music Money Sharing Formula!

If a grandma sings in your village, that music is FREE for all to use. But if Beyonce does the same thing, you cannot use the music anyhow without considering her intellectual properties.

Good enough, some zen-masters are building frameworks to protect African music creators. But as that happens, another problem has emerged: many people feel cheated across the compensation chains and calling names have become common. A lawyer explains in Tekedia.

"I am looking forward to when the Nigeria music industry is legally advanced like our counterparts in the West when artistes, producers, composers, lyricists etc will all be knowledgeable as to their rights, and royalties, in the music they have created, or they are about to create, and they will ask for contracts, itemizing their rights and royalties, to the song, before they can go ahead with the project, as this will be the antidote to all this regular outbursts, and name calling of one artiste ripping off or cheating the other artiste. "
