The PGM Club

The PGM Club At Music Biz 2020

Over the last decade, Nigeria has seen major investments and development in infrastructure. This changed the way music is produced, distributed & toured within the country, and impacted the overall output and global reach of regional content. This panel will provide a detailed insight into the fresh market while addressing three core areas that play key roles in redefining the landscape:

The rise of the Nigerian live industry and how the country is taking control of audience interaction, especially by redefining its brand through global festivals and concerts.

The reappearance of major labels alongside independent labels and their new business models.

The rapid rise of digital distribution connecting consumers via technology while providing new income streams, combating physical piracy, and restructuring the market.

Our panelists will present detailed insight regarding this new and exciting market, particularly how it provides an array of fresh business opportunities for music companies if they tap into Africa’s western music fan base early, and how it may benefit the worldwide music business.

This interview is part of the Global Business Community program

Music Biz’s Global Business Community program will dive deep into the top rising international markets set to make a splash in the near future. Across three panels, we will discuss how the industry’s expansion in Latin America, Africa, and China will impact the music business at large, and what considerations must be taken when international players break new ground in these regions.

The PGM Radio Show With Nonso Amadi


In this episode, Douglas Jekan had a heartfelt one on one conversation with Nonso Amadi about music, life, family, and relationships in the music business.

Aylo – LITT

We’re pleased to inform our readers that Aylo’s latest release is a pleasant surprise. The new single titled LITT is just that; but not in the way you’d expect, especially if you thought littuations only happen fast-paced.

Laced with calm instrumentals and soothing vocals, the song once again proves that less is more. The music is seamless and gets you nodding and moving to its designs.

LITT is Aylo’s promise to his fans that he’ll be dropping a series of singles building up to the late summer release his next project. And furthermore a message to all the nay-sayers that he fully intends to keep dropping gems his way.

LITT is a nice break from all of the noise and we all deserve a break, don’t we? I know I do.

 

 

PGM Radio Show with Phlow & Oma Mahmud

Female rap sensation Phlow came in to talk about her new and upcoming projects and she dropped mad punch lines with her new release 6Shots. Oma Mahmud was also in to premiere new music.

Lady Donli – Games (ft GJ The Caesar)

Lady Donli has just released the first single off her next project called “Enjoy Your Life.” The new single titled ‘Games‘ features Gj the Caesar and has a stand out line amongst many that says, all the games you play will lead you to my room.  I wonder who she could be referring to.  Can you guess?

Check it out and let us know your thoughts.

Finally, a big congratulations to Lady Donli on achieving 300k stream on Spotify for her song Ice Cream featuring the talented Tomi Thomas.  Now let’s get it to 1million streams!

Amaarae – Fluid

Amaarea’s Fluid visuals, damn; she killed it.  The colors, the song, her face, what more do you want? I could watch this video on a loop for an hour. The transitions, the color grading of the video is a work of art.

If you have never heard of Amaarea, be prepared to be left in awe.
