Dawn Of Independent Artist

Research has shown that independent artists are considered the fastest-growing part of the global music industry. This is becoming what many consider to first step in the largest paradigm shift the music business has witnessed in decades, according to MIDiA Research and indie distributor Amuse.

A global report carried out presents a projection of how unsigned artists make money and advance their career and ambitions.

Key Findings

Unsigned artists without a label single-handedly generated $643.1 million in 2018, up 35% from 2017. This category of musical artists represents a significant number on the global scale with the most impact. Native streamers are also more than label artists.

The power has been taken out of the hands of record labels. It has been proven that record labels are now a means to an end and not the prerequisite, as statistics have proven that only one-third of label artists consider it important to be signed to a record label, while those without record deals sit on a little bit more than half.

Revenue is another challenge as three-quarter of unsigned artists earns lower than $10,000 annually from music and average incomes are also low for artists on record labels. That is why most artists have more than one source of income from diverse careers just to ensure they are still safe in the food chain.

Now power rests in the hands of artists and not just labels and other mediums, who have to decide the fate and future of artists. Now is the future for artists especially with platforms like CeFlix Tunes advancing their career even in the midst of the hurdles the music industry faces, artists now know that they have control over their career and with this control, a lot of improvement and growth has come with it.

Why Music Promotion Is “A Must Know” As An Artist!

Artists generally don’t necessarily bother about promoting their music, or the importance of aggressive promotion. They are only concerned about singing and releasing a song.

Only a small percentage actually understands the significance of music promotions, a larger percentage do not and ironically, even inside the small percentage of the artists who know the relevance of promoting their music, most of them fail to do it right.

In this article, you will discover three important ways to promote your music as an independent artist!

1. Collaboration: Collaborating with other artists is always a success strategy for artists looking to project their music onto a wider audience. The key is collaborating with artists whose music is similar or relates to yours, in the process, their fans become your fans and vice-versa.

An easier option is mentioning or giving shout-outs to each other on social media, sharing one another’s links and latest tracks and expressing your love for it. There is power in a recommendation when it comes to music promotion and publicity.

2. Cover songs: Everybody wants their music to be heard, but a lot of times, it pays better to pay respects to popular artists, because people are more comfortable with a song they are familiar with and will likely prefer it to an unknown original, not because you are not good but because they are already familiar with it.

Therefore, by doing a cover song of a popular artist, you can tap into their fan base and take some of their fans also the hard work of popularizing the song is already done for you and it doesn’t have to cost much, social media has made life easy for everyone.

3. Approach Music Blogs and Score A feature: Music blogs are a good start given the saturation of the music market. If you want to promote your music, it’s difficult to cut through the noise and be noticed by the media. Bloggers are on the search for the latest content; therefore by running your music on the blog, you are converting their fans to yours automatically. Tell a story with your music worth listening to and put your music above the rest with an impactful and inspiring story, remember, it’s all about establishing a relationship with these bloggers, making it easier for them to cover your story and feature you on their platform.

Pastor Israel Bursts into the scene with Never Go Down!

There is an undeniable timelessness in Gospel music; it’s a genre flowing with so much milk and honey that never dries, seasoned with flourishing chords and fathomless expressions.

Pastor Israel proves his talents once more with his signature style of music. A powerfully laced soundtrack, mixed with a flawless percussion that is both scintillating and stunning.

“Never Go Down” does not disappoint, as its undertone is imbued with a message of love and faith at the very core, it inspires a lifestyle that yields towards absolute love and trust in Jesus, even in failing and troubling circumstances.

“When the systems of the world are failing… All things are mine. I can never go down.” This is a powerful message from the song as Pastor Israel, popularly known as PI, yields himself totally, sustained with his powerful male vocal, whose tone and expression perfectly emphasizes the message of faith, belief, strength, and trust.

“With Never Go Down,” PI artistically crafted a masterfully-balanced juxtaposition of sparkling and refreshing perspective in his rhythm and sound.

The song is no doubt a classic and a true confession of the unwavering love and power of Christ today, tomorrow and forever.

Which way Nigerian Music?

Nigerian’s music industry has evolved no doubt, looking back to where it is coming from, one can hardly believe the speed at which it got to this point. It didn’t get here by magic, as at 2016 to 2021, the Entertainment and Media Industry is estimated to produce income of up to $2.8 billion according to a report by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) report.

The big break for the Nigerian Music scene came in just like the book of Ecclesiastes 3: 1, which says “To everything, there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens.” Finally, the world decided it was time to hear the African Sound, and Nigeria was a strong pioneer of the African sounds.

The influx of the big stars and record labels from 2004 saw the Nigerian Music Industry evolve into a mega-industry that adds to the GDP of the country. Our local artists within this period began collaborating with the foreign artists, we have seen Dbanj and Kanye West, PSquare and Rick Ross, Frank Edwards and Don Moen, now we have our very own artists earning up to $100,000 per show.

Now, from 2016 to 2019, Nigeria sounds and tunes have become globally recognized and a force to reckon with universally. Asides the foreign collaboration, our artists are getting mega endorsements from international brands like Coca-cola, Nike and other top players. These brands understand the power of numbers and they know the Nigerian sound command the kid of numbers they need as a brand to stay in the spotlight.

Our music is now a commercial exchange in the musical ecosystem and every country is dealing and importing our sounds. The world has indeed awoken to the Nigerian sounds and it is only just beginning.

Artists and Endorsements – Inseparable Lovers!

Endorsements and sponsorships offer artists a great way to fund their music!

And brands play a big role in that arrangement.

A sponsorship or endorsement deal is a business deal, which yields a profitable return for the sponsor/endorsee and in exchange provides a monetary or commercial benefit to the artist.

Sponsorships and endorsements are difficult to get, therefore an artist must prove their mettle to a prospective sponsor/endorsee with deliverable results.

When you see Wizkid with a bottle of Coke on a TV commercial or Olamide for Hollandia Yoghurt, immediately it paints a picture in your mind as a consumer of that product. Brands know this and that is exactly the effect they want to get.

An artist’s endorsement of a product sends different messages. The first is, it places the brand above its competitors. I mean it has to be really good for an artist of that caliber to be associated with it. This value the artist identity brings is very beneficial to the brand, and this translates to payment to the artist.

The higher the value, the higher the fee, and this is where artists come in.

People generally associate cost with quality, so when an artist recommends a brand or product, we treat it with the same importance as we would if the artist told us personally.

Last but not least, an artist’s recommendation of a brand places extra value on it, and we feel the need to buy the same products so we can attain the stature their association offers.

This is why artists are so dear to brands: their support and recommendation speaks volume much more than the brand could say in words.

5 important things to do as an upcoming artist

These steps you are about to read will put ahead in the game

Today, the global music industry is filled with lots of talented singers and entertainers. Breaking into the entertainment industry as an artist is usually a stiff competition for every upcoming artist who wants to be ahead of the game.

I have decided to craft out 6 things you should do as an upcoming artist for you to be ahead of other upcoming artists in Nigeria.

  1. MEDIA – Record labels are not signing artists anymore – they are signing audiences. The first step a new artist can take to attract record labels is to build and establish a digital presence. You need a robust promotion to get noticed. Get your song on radio stations, social media and always perform on street shows, befriend DJ’s for your song to get a place on their mixtape, lastly, promote your songs on streaming platforms like CeFlix Tunes, Boomplay, Iroking, etc. If you can’t build a strong and aggressive social media presence, then hire a social media marketer.
  • BRANDING – Branding is one of the most compelling parts of the music industry, and your brand is how the world sees you. It is what separates you from every other artist in your genre, therefore, get something unique, be known for it, and make it all yours.
  • Persistence – As an upcoming artist, you need to have patience to weather the challenges and drawbacks that will arise from your hustle. A lot of artists can’t stand the heat so they leave the kitchen before the beats hit, but if you are strong and persistent, you will finally make it at the end of the day.
  • Quality – Quality will always triumph quantity. It doesn’t matter how many songs you have out there, as an upcoming artist, you must do the hard work and find atleast a semi-professional to mix and master a standard beat for you.
  • Craft- As an artist, you must hone your craft like a professional practices their art. You must create a distinguished sound, one that is identical to your brand. Let your audience be able to spot you with a common theme in your songs and always strive to develop a unique style. Your craft is quintessentially the most important part of developing your musical abilities.

Honorable Music Streaming Apps for Nigerian Music Lovers!

Globally, the music industry single-handedly generated US$19.1 billion and grew by 9.7% in 2018. The revenue gotten from streaming grew by 34.0% and accounted for almost half of the global revenue, a large percentage gotten from paid subscription streaming, with 255 million users of paid streaming services at the end of 2018 accounting for 37% of total recorded music revenue according to IFPI Global Music Report 2019.

This has marked a turning point in the music industry, whose major and quite frankly, the only source of income was from CDs, since the 1980s.

Today, technology and innovations in the music industry such as YouTube, SoundCloud, and other streaming platforms, has replaced Alaba distribution network and even blogs as the number one music provider network within the artist community.

It’s a do or die affair for companies and brands, as well as a get rich quickly for artists who have leveraged on this surge to take advantage of streaming giants like Boomplay, Tidal, CeFlix Tunes, Apple Music, etc, and to create a personalized experience for the listeners.

However, while music is on a whole new level in the foreign scene, with artists and fans operating the modern style method of streaming via the best free and paid music streaming apps and services, Mp4s, etc, Africa is still grasping at best and the gospel industry is not left out as most of these platforms don’t really satisfy the African market and give enough African-content especially gospel music as advertised.

Find a list of 5 amazing brands out there that are taking advantage of the rise of streaming in the country and are leveraging on the vast market to offer personalized and satisfactory services to their customers.

  1. Boom Play MusicIs a media streaming and download service that gives you access to unlimited African & International songs, videos & buzz.

SINGLES VS ALBUMS – THE MAKING! Part 2

Before this era, those of us that grew up in the ’90s and early 2000s, we experienced music differently. Artists were more rugged and when they released albums, you had no choice but to listen to every single track in your walkman, then fast forward, repeat and rewind to your favorites.

Artists worked hard for their music back then because nobody will buy a CD with only a single in it or two songs, no matter how good it was, everyone just had to buy a CD and listen to all the songs because of the way the walkman was designed.

Then the internet came and iPods changed everything and now, technology, music streaming devices, and YouTube have revolutionalized listening.

Today, the quickest way to be seen is on the charts, once you’ve made the charts then “you have arrived.”Album can come much later. Ask Davido, he knows this and he has been using this style to stay ontop the music scene.

He dropped IF and FIA in 2017, and with a strong social media he was the reigning king, prior to that, he last release was “Son of Mercy” in 2016, today he has demystified the puzzle. Assurance, one single meant for his girlfriend is on everyone’s soundtrack, Davido realized love sells and after IF and FIA, he learned and now he has used this strategy to garner and gather the fame and fortune that comes with understanding what works and what works best for you.

Some artists still believe in the old way of doing things, Falz the bad guy, Simi, etc, they still do the groundwork and churn out albums but a large majority of artists just want to hammer big with one single. This strategy might be perceived as making artists lazy, but again that’s the trend of the market and society, nobody wants to hear an entire album except you are popular and already known, else people just wanna listen to good songs and singles, provides just that.

With the right music, producer, social media marketing and platform, you can still get people to listen to your album, but first you need to carve your own niche and gain their trust with good music.

Singles or Albums…What’s your take?

Quality over quantity, and to gain the right traction, you need to work for it, it’s not magic and you won’t get a miracle you didn’t work for.
