The All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) is set to hold the second emergency summit of stakeholders in the Nigerian music industry on Monday.
The summit is in partnership with the Performing Musicians Employers Association of Nigeria (PMAN), Record Label Proprietors Initiative (RELPI), Association of Music Artist Managers of Nigeria (AMAMN) and Music Publishers Association of Nigeria (MPAN).
According to a statement, the summit, which focuses on the rebirth of the music, entertainment, arts, culture, and hospitality industry, will commence at 6:00 pm via Zoom.
The 2nd summit is geared towards refining and consolidating the policy recommendations by the designated 4-man legal team.
Mike Dada, AFRIMA president, said stakeholders expected to be in attendance include musicians/artistes, record labels, A&R, producers, promoters, artiste’s managers, brands, and songwriters.
Others are DJs, video vixens, directors, equipment production and rental companies, streaming service companies, entertainment lawyers, dancers, journalists, cameramen, editors, costumiers.
Dada described the first emergency summit as very symbolic and fruitful.
He expressed optimism that the outcome of the meeting would soon manifest and be appreciated by entertainment stakeholders in Nigeria and other African countries.
Pretty Okafor, PMAN president, said the meeting aims to educate and engage sectoral bodies on roles, obligations and benefits to all players in the music industry.
“It is very necessary for all players within the music ecosystem, especially the artistes to join relevant organisations to further guarantee and protect them and their crafts,” Okafor said.
The first emergency meeting of stakeholders in the Nigerian music industry was held on October 1, 2023.
At the summit, participants agreed on the need for well-crafted regulations to provide a stable framework for the industry, protect the rights of artistes, creators, record labels and promote investments.
Participants also called for minimum entry requirements for musicians and record labels to discourage mediocrity in the music industry.
