Music has been defined by some as “the universal language of the soul”. It goes without saying that the “language of music” is spoken by Nigerians too.
There are Nigerian websites out there that has provided an avenue for music lovers to explore collections of songs from Nigeria and/or around the world for free.
The illegality of this though on an international sphere is largely ignored in Nigeria in that it has become a norm. The economic situation of the country, lack of proper enlightenment and outdated copyright laws might have been a huge factor to this.
It however goes without saying that these music blogs also help in promoting and widening an artiste’s audience and fanbase in that although he might have lost out from the profit of a purchase or stream but stands to gain an wider and loyal fanbase for shows and concerts, brand endorsements and so on. Music blogs are also usually helpful for up-and-coming artistes that want their music to reach a large audience.
Regardless of these perceived benefits, it will however be of a moral standpoint from the writer’s point of view to show your support to these artistes whenever you can, by streaming their songs, purchasing their songs if you can afford to and other things to encourage these artistes financially.
