FG supporting stars like Burna Boy, Wizkid with N300 million loan: Osinbajo


 says the Bank of Industry in collaboration with the National Council for Arts and Culture, has secured a N300 million loan for Nigeria’s creative sector.

Mr Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement, on Sunday, said the vice president disclosed this at the opening of Ogidi Studios, a Lagos-based world-class creative complex, hosting recording, film production, animation, and writing studios, owned by the Temple Company.

Last year, the federal government handed over the National Theatre’s control to the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Bankers’ Committee.

According to Mr Osinbajo, the committee has committed to an investment of N25 billion as initial funding for developing the Nigeria Creative Centre at the National Theatre, Lagos.

He stated further, “The sector will receive support from the Central Bank of Nigeria’s Creative Industry Funds Initiative, an initiative that gives financial support to the technology and creative sector at single-digit interest rates.

“The Bank of Industry, in collaboration with the National Council for Arts and Culture, has also secured a N300 million loan package for the creative sector. The package provides the funds to the sector at single-digit interest rates with a tenor of four to five years.”

Regarding the studios, he noted, “Now the stars, not just Nigerian stars, but from all over the world have a place in Lagos that is as good as any studio they have ever recorded in. World-class script writing, music recording, video making, and editing can take place under one roof at the Ogidi Studios.”

In 2019, Netflix opened its first African office in Lagos and invested millions of dollars in buying and generating authentic African content on its platform.

Mr Osinbajo cited Burnaboy and Wizkid for taking the entertainment industry by storm and winning the Grammy Awards, saying the environment is prepared for Nigeria to produce more creative talents across the industry’s value chain.

“On March 14, Burna Boy and Wizkid took the entertainment industry by storm, winning the Grammy Awards and established themselves as amongst the best musicians in the world.

“Burnaboy won in the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category for the ‘Twice As Tall’ Album and Wizkid; the real Starboy, in the Best Music Video category for his feature in the song ‘Brown Skin Girl,'” he said.

WAIT!! Did Tiwa Savage Win Grammy Award Yesterday? Why Is Nobody Celebrating It? (See This)


Burna Boy and Wizkid each clinched an award at the just concluded Grammys for Best Global Music Album and Best Music Video.

As the celebration was going on, some fans on social media began circulating reports that Tiwa Savage also got awards which have generated lots of controversy on social media.

According to Vanguard, Tiwa Savage, Femi and Made Kuti featured in Coldplay’s 2019 album, “Everyday Life”.

The album got a nomination for Best Record Packing and Album of The Year.

The Kutis featured on the amazing record, ‘Arabesque’ where Femi Kuti had an amazing Trumpet solo while Tiwa Savage worked on ‘Eko.’

The album, however, did win the much-coveted album of the year award as it went to Taylor Swift’s Album, Folklore.

If Coldplay had won, Tiwa Savage, Femi, and Made Kuti, would still not have won a Grammy. According to Vox:

Generally, if you participated in creating a significant portion of the album (defined as at least 33 percent of its playing time), you get a golden gramophone.

Also, looking at the rules of the category, it says:

For albums containing at least 51% playing time of new vocal or instrumental recordings. Award to Artist(s) and to Featured Artist(s), Songwriter(s) of new material, Producer(s), Recording Engineer(s), Mixer(s), and Mastering Engineer(s) credited with at least 33% playing time of the album, if other than Artist.

Since the three Nigerian artists didn’t participate in creating 33% of the album, they will only get Grammy certificates and not gramophones.

Tiwa Savage has won several awards and one is “Best African Act at the 2018 MTV Europe Music Awards”, becoming the first woman to win the category.

Summary, Tiwa Savage did not win any Grammy Award. I mean the gramophones, but was given a Grammy Certificate. Fair enough.

6 Nigerians You Probably Didn’t Know Have Won Grammy Awards


 The Nigerian music industry has witnessed exponential growth over the years and with this growth has come a rising hunger for international visibility and dominance.

Over the years, different Nigerian artistes have promised to bring home a Grammy award as the prestigious award is considered music’s highest recognition.

From Skales, Terry Apala, Vic O, 9ice and Blackmagic are some of those who have promised but failed to deliver a Grammy to Nigerians.

African Giant, Burna Boy is the latest Nigerian music act to be saddled with the responsibility of bringing home the honour. Although he didn’t promise fans a Grammy, music lovers all over Africa rejoiced when the “Killin Dem” hit maker scored a Grammy nomination.

The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences that oversees the Grammy Awards released its 2020 Grammy awards nominees and Burna Boy got a nod thanks to his “African Giant” album under the “World Music Album” category. The singer is nominated alongside other music stars like Altin Gün for “Gece”, Bokanté & Metropole Orkest Conducted By Jules Buckley for “What Heat”, Nathalie Joachim With Spektral Quartet for “Fanm D’ayiti” and Angelique Kidjo for “Celia”.
