20+ Record Labels In Nigeria Looking For Artists And Their Contacts

Record Labels In Nigeria Looking For Artists And Their Contacts
The music industry is becoming more like a business and many people are flooding into it, all looking for ways to make money as musicians.
You must have a large audience before you can really make a living from music, whether as a singer or rapper. Earning as a musician doesn't really end in uploading the music to a blog or other clouds and music uploading services for promotion, it requires getting a lot of fans who cannot wait to hear you release a new hit.
However, they can't be your fans if they have never heard of your existence, so you need to do a lot of promotions. One of the ways of promoting your music as an artist is by getting deals with already popular and established record labels, however it also means sharing your revenues.
That shouldn't be an issue because they'll put you in business and so have to gain too. It is a win-win game and not a charity organization, they help to relay your talent to the world by sponsoring collaborations, pushing your music and sponsoring your videos.
There are many Nigerian record labels looking for artists and we have the contract profiles of the top 10 richest record labels in Nigeria and more. This is not about top gospel record labels in Nigeria alone, but the general music industry including the gospel.

It's true that they don't post vacancies or publicize in newspapers, of course you can imagine the crowd that would flood with so much quack music to get signed in. However, you can contact them to show your interest, that way they'd be sure to filter the music and save themselves a lot of headache.
Although there are many ways to get signed to a record label, for example a former 5 Star artist, Xbusta won a contract while performing on stage at Owerri and Olamide signed the YBNL princess because he noticed her on Instagram, but you might also need to make a move to locate your own grace.
Before going through the list, you should know that many of the record label CEOs are big business gurus and very busy, so you should not give them a link to download your music as they get thousands of them. It's advisable that you send your music in form of CDs to the address given or upload them to SoundCloud so they can play them directly.
