Are you looking for ways to sell your music in Nigeria? If yes, read this post and discover what you should do.
The Nigerian music industry over the years has become one of the most relevant and revenue generating sector in the entertainment industry.
From Davido to Wizkid, Iyanya to new kid on the block, Korede Bello, the music industry in Nigeria is saturated with all types of music for every audience.
Rock, Fuji, Afrobeat and Soul, no day goes by without another artist churning out new tunes and danceable beats. So, how can any artist especially an upcoming one get into an already saturated music industry and sell his music?
The following suggestions will address that.
Talent does not really count. Get any experienced person in the industry known to churn out hits for his artists.
For instance, Durobucci boss, Don Jazzy who has a midas touch in every music he handles, turning meaningless words into chart busters.
It is highly probable that your music will sell like hot cake if this music maestro handles it.
Get to know your market and also have a target audience in mind before writing that song. Gone were the days a person sang to express himself, now, you sing what the people want.
Music is big business in Nigeria, so invest more in danceable beats and crazy tunes. That is how to guarantee sales.
Social media also sells music in Nigeria. Log into Nairaland and Twitter, Linda Ikeji blog or Facebook, wherever people visit on-line and sell your music.
Go to radio stations, try Alaba marketers and distributors , put your cd everywhere .
People don’t know what they want , they accept what is given to them, shove yourself into the faces of Nigerians.
Make sure to tip the radio Dj and presenters generously, as money talks. Doing this ensures that your song is played every time on radio, making listeners more familiar with your music and in no time, you start smiling to the bank.
Also get the most creative music director to shoot a music video. Hire sexy ladies who know how to wiggle their waists, using amazing costumes with blings , never mind if it is the 1005 naira type, get it, it signifies having lots of money.
The more flashy the video, the more it will be watched, guaranteeing more sales for the music.
Most importantly, looks matter, make sure you look amazing.
For a male artist, make sure you build your muscles and display them like Iyanya. For a female, make-up works.
Always try to look “smoking-hot”, wear tight pants like Tiwa Savage ; it’s also a way to break even in this competitive music industry.
