Nigerians need to wake up, it isn’t bad for superstars to employ songwriters for hits.
Songwriting in Nigeria has been a very sensitive topic. The Nigerian music industry, with its unstructured copyright laws and lack of publishing, does not encourage it.
“A song I wrote for @iam_Davido drops tomorrow!! S/O to OBO for giving young writers like myself a chance!! I can’t wait for y’all to hear “Like Dat” Another Monster Hit,” Teniola Apata tweeted in 2017.
The reaction to the tweet was instant and polarized. Nigerians were divided on her declaration. Many congratulated her for her efforts in working with Davido and penning a record for him. Others attacked her for jumping the gun, instead of waiting for the singer to make the announcement himself. What difference does this make? Is it a bad thing to employ the use of Songwriters? Listen to Motolani Alake as he enlightens on the subject.
