Right now, the problem is how can an artist make money from music in Nigeria even with that tag “upcoming”?

I’ll be answering that question alongside other helpful tips for musicians. Please join me as I take you through the nitty-gritties of making money from music in Nigeria.

Top Ways to Make Money from Music in Nigeria

  1. Record a hit song

The first thing you need to get started with before thinking of making money from your music in Nigeria is to work on a hit song, also known as “banger”.

Take enough time to compose a meaningful song that will woo people’s attention. Try to do market research before coming to a conclusion.

This is what I mean by doing market research; take a look at what’s going on in your environment, jump to popular social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, check your newsfeed on Opera Mini, UC browser or other News aggregator app and ask yourself: Which or what type of song is trending and people will like to hear at this moment?

I’m not saying you should copy someone else. But you need to go with the flow to make money from music in Nigeria.

BUT If you got a unique style to give out, don’t hesitate to let it out.

Remember Naija musicians like Adekunle Gold, Kiss Daniel, Teni, Fireboy DML, the current street princes; Zlatan ibile and NairaMarley all rose to fame and money making artists with a UNIQUE but hit record.

  1. Market or Promote Your Music in Nigeria

There’s no way you will hear about Wizkid, Olamide, Burna Boy and other top musicians in Nigeria if they have not made enough sacrifices to get song heard.

Yes, they have spent some years working in studio, telling bloggers to help them hype their songs, giving DJs money to help them air their songs and so on….. This is a compulsory sacrifice for any artist aspiring to make money singing in Nigeria.

It baffles me if I look at average upcoming artists in Nigeria who keep releasing good songs but can’t help their own ministry. Is it because they’re stingy, too poor, lack self-esteem or not really serious about the said career?

If you want to make it big, you need to pay for it.

You can promote your music in Nigeria by:

  • social media
  • radio promotion
  • DJ mixtapes
  • and so on

  1. Selling Your Music in Nigeria

This is a no brainer! You don’t need to be told about this, but if you don’t know how to go about it, I’ll let you know.

So you spent a lot of money in the studio cooking up this great jam and probably a dope video to go with it. How do you make those huge sums back and get much profit?

The first step to sell your music and make money in Nigeria is to get connected with trusted marketers.

There are lots of people in the entertainment industry whose their  job is to market products from music to video, movies and all products of entertainment. Getting to know them will help your course.

You will get to meet these marketers by networking with other artists ‘who are doing better than you’ and they connect you with some of the best in the business. Armed with this information, you can go on to sell your music to a wide variety of audience.

Another resource you should is the media houses, more especially radio stations.

It doesn’t take much, with a little sum, you can visit any of the local radio stations, they’ll like to listen to it and if they do and find it worthy of airplay, get ready, your song is about to hit many homes will increase the demand for your song.

But hey, we need to go digital in order to fasten the processes of making money as an upcoming artist in Nigeria. I mean, we need to take the market to the global village, the “internet”.

I’m sure superstars in Nigeria and all parts of the world earn most of their money through the internet. You can also do the same.

  1. Start a YouTube Channel

You’re missing out big time if you don’t have a personal or a brand YouTube channel for your songs.

If you understand how YouTube works, I know you’ll be thinking that how can you make money as an upcoming artist in Nigeria with this video streaming platform.

Especially when you have no music video…..

Isn’t it surprising?

Well, this is how you can make money from music in Nigeria through a good YouTube channel if you’re an upcoming artist;

Start and set up a YouTube channel now, get a video editor or any body who can mix video using apps or software on laptop.

Now, choose a trending music video like “Wo!” by Olamide.

After that, record a cover song for the track that blends exactly with the beat and tell your video editor to mix the original Olamide video with your own cover song.

Give it a name like “Olamide ft (You) – Wo! Remix” and finally upload to your YouTube channel.

Note that I’m using Olamide’s Wo! as a specimen here. You can use any songs that fit your genre but make sure it’s hot and trending.

In my recent research, such tactics will definitely work because Nigeria’s people like entertainment a lot. I know of a YouTube channel that do something exactly like this and get hundred thousands of views.

You don’t need to be doing cover always, you can mix like 5 best video music together and upload or record a review about a particular song.

Now, I know you’ll be asking that….

Will YouTube Really Earn Me Money in Nigeria?

Yes, you can earn millions of naira from YouTube. This is how;

When you’ve reached a certain milestone of views and subcribers, you’ll then apply for Adsense and if you’re approved, YouTube will start displaying ads on your channel, from it you’ll start making money.

BUT note that the more views, the more money you’ll earn.

So, what are you waiting for? Start a YouTube channel today!

I can set up a professional YouTube account for you but only if you’re ready to pay for the service. if you’re interested, contact me here or WhatsApp me: 080 6886 6068.

  1. Song Writing

As a musician, you don’t have to sing songs always you’d have to diversify and songwriting is a good way to do this. Most music artists in Nigeria, the top among them do write songs for other artists and they do make money from it.

Songwriting doesn’t require much, in fact you just need you pen and paper or since we’re in a digital era, you could use a PC to write.

Top artists, like Mr Songs and Perruzi are among the many artists who have established themselves as top music writers in the Nigeria music sphere.

If you could write a song that make it among the hits, be ready coz more offers from top artists awaits you. You can even pitch them yourself.

It’s not that easy to get noticed by these superstars. But remember your goal to make money from music in Nigeria.

Let this goal pushes you to chase your dream as a songwriter. Get along with popular DJs and musicians related to your songs on Instagram.

  1. Get a Website or Blog

This is now getting more serious and important, don’t you think so?

Personally, I’m a blogger as you can easily guess reading this article and also, I have a seperate business website where I showcase my services (website design, blog setup, SEO, freelance writing etc..) and my previous job done.

This blog and my business website fetch me some bucks from ads, sponsored posts and getting clients interested in my services.

You can also use the same strategy to make money from music.

You can do this in two ways;

The first way is to become a music blogger. If you’re an upcoming artist, you can start blogging about latest music in Nigeria including yours.

This will let  you build your fanbase and be of great help to your career. It will become easier to do two things at a time; that is, getting huge traffic to download your songs and making money in the process.

The second way is to build a personal website for your music career only.

You can make money from this personal website if your performances and songs are recognized. People like individuals, brand and company will try to contact you for promotion deal.

For instance, Zenith Bank is currently using Emma Oh My God, a comedian turned singer as their promotional ambassador because of his uniqueness and passion in him.

Either the first or the second way, you can definitely make money from Music in Nigeria by having a website or blog.

Note that, I can help you set up a professional music blog or website for your career only if you’re ready to pay for the service. if you’re interested, contact me here or WhatsApp me: 080 6886 6068.

  1. Live Performance

Doing a live performance is one superb way to sell yourself out to a much greater audience with lots of top personalities in Nigeria. You never know who’s watching, what you’ll find out is that live show sells you out to even those who are not much of a music freak.

Performing at a live show shouldn’t be a big deal, if you’ve got the vibes, the audience will flow along with you. You don’t need to host a live show, seeing that you’re not financially bouyant, you just need to make yourself available for top musicians who will be hosting theirs and from there you can shoot your shot.

But if you’re willing to venture into it, go on and host yours  , be prepared to pay top stars who will be participating.

P.S. Ever heard of ‘stealing the show‘ you should do this if you can. Imagine hearing your name all over the place after a live performance, feels so good… right? It doesn’t just feel good, it’s a sign that the people are beginning to fall in love with you, in no time your music sales would skyrocket!

Performing live is a good way to make money from music in Nigeria and you should explore that part, your fans want to see you, feel you, to know you’re the real deal.

The top artists you see today do perform at live shows, parties and other events that fetch them money when they’re not in the studio.

  1. Join a record label!

I know is quite difficult to gain the attention of a good record label in Nigeria, yes it is.

But if you really want to make money from music in Nigeria, and also advance your career, then joining a record label is advisable. You may have heard stories in recent times linking the success of some musicians to their record label, those stories are quite true.

Today, there are lots of record labels available to join, you can choose one by doing what will amaze or impress record label owners.

A good example is REMA who gained the attention of D’Prince, Don Jazzy’s brother and today he’s a rising young star in Nigeria’s music industry under the umbrella of Mavins Records.

Another one which you may know is that of Olamide who signed like 2 artists (Yomi Blaze and Picazo Rhap) after seeing their amazing freestyles on Instagram.

Do something amazing and interesting, try to gain attention from record label’s owners, sign the written contract which should contain certain terms and conditions — in case of doubt ask for more explanation on what may not be clear to you. They’ve been stories about contract misunderstanding and you don’t want that to happen to you.

Reekado Banks, Korede Bello, Di’ja, Lil Kesh, Adekunle Gold all rose to fame after joining a record label.

Even, Olamide was from Codedtunes, Wizkid from Empire Music Mates (EME) and so on…

Bro, you need a successful record label to make money from music in Nigeria.

  1. Distribute Your Songs Online in Nigeria

  1. COQ (Consistency, Originality, Quality)

I’ll start first with consistency, a concise look into top music stars one would discover that they are known for a particular genre of music.

You may have heard of the saying ‘jack of all trades, master of none‘! It’s also applicable to the music world. You need to decide on one style of music and stick to it, so when you think about that genre, they’ll think of you. Michael Jackson is known as the ‘king of pop’, it didn’t happen by fluke, he was consistent with his style.

Next is originality. You can’t be someone else, trying to sing like other artists isn’t advisable. As a musician, you should see yourself as a brand and try as much as you can to promote that brand.

And lastly….

Quality! People one to listen to good music, music is sometimes prescribed as a non-oral drug that soothes the mind.

You don’t need to release songs on a weekly, one quality song that will hit played across the country will fetch you good money. Anything worth doing, is worth doing well, keep dropping quality hits and you’ll keep making money from music in Nigeria.

      7 Super Professional Tips to Build a Successful Business in 2022

      Published

      on

      It is a new year and you’ve been thinking of how you can build a successful business but don’t know how or where to start. Let’s talk about that and see if you’ll learn something, or be inspired.

      Some businesses fail because they’re following old blueprints which no longer work effectively to build their startup.

      We’ve learned a lot between 2020 and 2021, and we’ve seen how businesses are affected by the ongoing Corona Virus pandemic. But ideas to start or build a business are waxing stronger in us, how are we going to bring these ideas to reality?

      But is 2022 the right time to start a business?

      Yes, it’s never too late to start a business in 2022 and you are still going to see rapid growth if you put in all the efforts.

      Regardless of the Coronavirus and its variants, you’ll agree with me that starting and building a business these days is easier compared to a few years ago as a result of technology and more investors who’re ready to provide capital for a futuristic business plan.

      According to a report, investors spent more than $140 billion to support startups in 2017 and the figures have increased ever since then till date. This shows how people like you are creating something or a platform that solves a ‘problem’ and how people are ready to support it. 

      If you’re also planning to launch your startup, you’re welcome, it’s never too late to be phenomenal.

      Aside from investors who’re ready to invest, you don’t necessarily need to build your business by renting a big hall or apartment for office use, thanks to COVID-19, you can gather your team and work remotely, while you’re saving a lot of money that will go into office setup.

      If you have a good business plan or startup idea and you’re worried about what to do next, the following tips will help you get started;

      7 Tips to Build a Business in 2022

      #1. Do Your Research and Understand Your Mission

      You see, a lot of people see other people building stuff and they got jealous to build something too – this is a wrong motivation to start a business. 

      You have to think clearly about what you want to do, you ask yourself: “In what way(s) can this idea or business help people?” – emphasize “help people”.

      If you want to start a fashion design company, do your research thoroughly and understand that you’re about to build a type of business some people have built already. So, how are you planning to get better and beat your competitors?

      For instance, can you think of a unique fashion trend and dominate it for the long term? If yes, what fashion trend and how can you hit the market with your idea?

      You have to plan all these, you just don’t voluntarily jump into the ocean without knowing if it’s safe or not. If it’s not safe, then how are you going to survive?

      #2. Get a Team Members with Common Goals

      The spirit of being the CEO and (sole) founder is part of what’s killing some businesses and startups to date. I’m not saying you can’t build a business alone, you can! But you can’t survive alone. If you survive alone, you won’t go far alone.

      Build a Successful Business

      You have to understand this concept. If you read about big business builders in the world, you’ll notice one thing that’s very common to them – they don’t build alone! 

      Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, etc., will tell you that they called their friends when they were about to start their company. Why? It’s simply because they need teammates who can work with them to achieve their primary and respective goal(s).

      The reason is simply that if one is falling, another person will lift him. And this boils down to you looking and calling the right people to join you or else if you fall, that’s the end of the business.

      So look for the right people in your circle, during meetups, on social media, share the business idea with them and be patient to see those who’ll be ready to join you.

      Getting team members here is different from hiring people. You have to look for someone or some people who’re ready to take ownership of the business and work diligently.

      They can in turn be your co-founder, CTO, etc… Just make sure you’re careful and patient enough to see someone with the same common goal.

      #3. Start Building with the Little You Have:

      You know the type of business you want to build and you have someone or some people who are ready to work with you. The next thing is to start building that business with the little resources you have.

      The mistake most people make is that they’re waiting for the “perfect time” and that time translate to when they have sufficient money to invest in the business. The truth is that that perfect time won’t come unless you start now.

      And I will like to say this if you’re starting a new business but you don’t have money to invest personally, you’re still not going anywhere. It’s either you get a job, make money and come back to that idea or, you sell the business idea to someone else.

      The bottom line is that you have to start from you, even if you will need investors to inject capital into your business, you have to show them something – your ideas + efforts.

      #4. Create Good Information and Communication Flow

      As part of what you’re starting with, is how you can bridge the communication gap between your business and your target audience (investors included). That’s why you need to invest in creating that information and communication flow.

      This is not a big deal at all, you just need to create an online presence for your business by getting a website, getting on social media, and investing in Email marketing or CRM tools.

      If you can’t build the website yourself, you can hire freelancers to get the job done for you, there are free email marketing tools like MailChimp that you can get started with. You can hire an expert to manage your business’s social media handles for you too. The person will be in charge of content creation, posting, and attending to comments.

      Having a website is very important, if it’s just a landing page, do it and let people know about your business from there and use your social media handles to keep telling people about your mission, not that loudly tho.

      #5. Start Expanding the Business

      You’ve tried a lot, but it’s not the time to relax. It’s time to start thinking of expansion. I mean expansion at all lengths.

      If you launch your business to focus on people in Canada and they accept it with open hands, it’s time to expand to New York, and then to Paris, to Africa, etc.

      In your team as well, you need to have some people who will be in charge of marketing, human resources, engineering, international relation, legal, and many departments within your company.

      With great power comes greater responsibility, the more you’re growing, the more you should expand.

      But what if your company can’t afford to hire people you need to run the business as you’re thinking of expanding, is that the end? No, it’s not!

      #6. It’s time to Seek Business Funding

      This is not a must if your business can afford to finance itself, but I bet it can. As a startup that’s at the entry or expansion stage, you need money to take care of a lot of things and some people are ready to provide that money!

      There are people called Angel investors and some are called Venture capitalists, these people are in the business of investing in other businesses to make a profit. No money is too big to invest for VCs as long as your company’s evaluation is also big.

      If you think your business need funding, kindly check this blog post on how to get one for your business.

      #7. Don’t Stop Expanding; Invest More in Your Business

      You’re not there yet. Start investing more in advertising, your team members, think of innovation and, acquire other related small businesses.

      Just don’t stop growing!

      I hope these tips will help you start that business in 2022 and I believe you can conquer the world, don’t worry, start today!

      MTN’s IPO: How to Buy MTN Shares with less than N50,000

      Published

      on

      Here is your time to shine, you can now buy MTN shares and join the leagues of MTN shareholders in Nigeria.

      Nigeria’s telecommunication giant, MTN Nigeria recently announced the selling of 575 million of its shares to the public on Tuesday, November 30th, 2021. Just in case you don’t know what “shares” is, let’s me quickly tell how it works;

      What are Shares?

      Share simply means a percentage of ownership in a company. Those who hold these shares are called “shareholders” and you can also call them “investors”.

      What that simply means is that, let’s say you buy MTN shares, you have a percentage of every percentage of the company. If the stock rises, your share rises and vise versa.

      How Shares Work?

      The more shares of a company you’re holding, the more decision-making power you have in that company and the more your profit if the company is performing well.

      Let’s say you buy 250 units of MTN shares at the rate of N169 each, which is N42,250.

      And luckily, MTN stocks jump to x10, that’s also N42,250 x 10 for you. You’ve made N422,500!

      That’s just the simple idea, if you know how FOREX, stocks, or cryptocurrency work, you have the idea of how Shares work also.

      But you don’t need to panic because MTN Nigeria is leading and doing well in Nigeria, investing your money to buy from their shares will be a good return on investment (ROI) for you.

      …and this is a golden opportunity if you’ve been looking for where to invest your money.
