Banky W has come out to say record producers should be paid royalties every time their music is played.
The EME boss said this at the Nigerian Entertainment Conference fouth edition.
stating tat ID Cabasa should be getting paid for his input on the “Gongo Aso” album by Nice.
“I think that the structure of the music business in general needs a lot of fixing in Nigeria. We all need to come together and fix the structure. Everybody in the industry value change.
Yes the artistes record, the producer should be getting money on the back-end. They should be getting royalties for every of their music that’s played.
I always like to use 9ice’s Gongo Aso album as example. In my opinion, it’s one of the albums that’s ever come out of Nigeria in our history.” Mr Wellington said.
This he believes if addressed would go a long way in developing the Nigerian music industry.
