I enjoyed Kennis Music Executive, Kenny’s Ogungbe’s, chronicle of the history of record labels in Nigeria. I read the speech back in April of this year but I think hearing it really solidifies the long way the industry has come. Ogungbe made, at the end of his speech, a statement that COSON executives felt was inflammatory i.e. “there should not be pirates in the name of collecting societies.” Nevertheless, I don’t think it detracts from this rich history that he shares at the inaugural Nigerian Entertainment Conference, held in April 2013.
Check it out folks. What do you think about how far we have come and the journey that lies ahead?
