The Nigerian music industry is becoming more competitive day by day, upcoming artist are trying to be heard and most of them have spent over a fortune and still haven’t get the desired attention they need.
With a good guidance and knowledge of “How To Be Heard” in the Nigerian music industry, some other upcoming artist have been able to use their budget very well in creating a niche for theirself, meanwhile other Upcoming Artist Rely soley on their talent waiting on one record label to come and sign them without even putting work and investing in their art.
The truth is, no body would want to sign an artist who haven’t invested in his/her self yet.
