International Conference on the Music Industry in Nigeria on April 25, 2024 in Lagos, Nigeria

Nigerian music has in recent years become an aspect of the nation’s culture that is globally recognised with over 30 million monthly consumers across the world. Beyond culture, the Nigerian music industry itself is a major contributor to the nation’s economy generating over $2 billion in revenue and employing a significant portion of the Nigerian massive labour force. The industry is undergoing a profound transformation, spurred by the rapid advancement of modern technologies and the digital revolution. In this dynamic landscape, the industry is not only flourishing creatively but is also grappling with intricate challenges that demand innovative solutions.

Despite the great strides the industry has taken and the consequent global appreciation, it continues to face numerous challenges that hinder its growth. Its latent potential is limited by the fact that, to a great extent, it has remained in the informal sector. Added to this are the challenges of inadequate infrastructure, poor funding, piracy, and insufficient rights protection.

Against this backdrop, the School of Media and Communication, Pan-Atlantic University, in partnership with Aristokrat Group is organising a one-day conference on the Nigerian music industry. We extend an invitation for the submission of papers that contribute to the discourse surrounding the contemporary music landscape in Nigeria. The event hopes to bring together professionals, scholars, industry leaders, and enthusiasts to discuss the possibilities, trends, and developments in the music industry while offering valuable opportunities to expand knowledge, network, and maximize the possibility for national development.
