Now how to show your talent to record labels in Nigeria?. In case you are thinking of contacting record labels to tell them how talented you are without any prove, then we advice you don’t even dare it because you will be wasting your time and airtime for nothing. No record label will ever take you serious with a phone call telling them you want a record deal, in fact charms don’t just work on this.

According to EME record label, the boss of this record label mentioned that nothing will make them sign an artist because of how convincing he/she could be with their mouth, and will not take any artist requesting for a record deal serious. He said, Eni-ola and Skale has already make name for themselves before the record label signed them.

This means in other to get a record deal in Nigeria you have to work very hard on your own, make a name for yourself in the music industry, sing a song that will blow you up. Record labels want to see how people love/like your songs, they want to know if you worth investing on.

How To Get Signed To A Record Label In Nigeria

You have to showcase your talent to record labels and to Nigerians, this will make everyone to believe that with a little sponsor or hard work you are going to kick up, and you can make a record label proud in future. I will be showing you on this article some tips you can use in showcasing your talent to record labels.

1. Record a good song, and get a video for it

Some Nigeria artist these days are really funny at same time annoying with their songs, listening to some Nigeria music really want to make someone hate music. How would a poor artist be singing “I gat billions on my account, gals want to rock me, this that”? Question to ask yourself is which artist with this kind of song is been remembered or celebrated? Is this a kind of music you want to get a record deal with?.

Someone like me will want to listing to a kind of soul music to ease the day stress and make me feel cool, I want reality and liability and free expression of one self and not how many girls slept in your bed and how much you have in your bank account etc. I don’t want to hear rock me music when I am not in the club, so why singing rock me in your first music when you don’t have record label? Why singing you have millions when your are still struggling? If Davido or Wizkid is singing such music people will love it because they can feel the money in them even without been told. So it’s better you should sing a song that fit your current status that will touch people when listening to. Take a look at the simple music that blew Patoranking title Alobarika This is example of good music.

2. Go for musical contest

Music contest is another good way of showing your talent to record labels. Music contest such as MTN project frame, X-factor can do you a lot of good. You don’t need to win before you get expose to record labels, all you need if give your best to top 10 or 5, try to make a name while you are in the contest, and soon you leave the contest try to release a track, make sure you have video for it. Remember if your song get’s loved by your fans, record label will come looking for you.

3. Make good use of social media

Making a good use of social media’s such as Facebook, twitter etc is a preference of getting a record deal in Nigeria. According to Kennis music boss on interview. He stated that artist with good amount of loyal twitter followers, Facebook fans and Instagram have a better opportunity of getting record deal than an artist that has no fans. This is because they want your music to go far as soon as it been launch. He mentioned that, you can’t be expecting record label to offer you a deal when you are having just 200 Facebook fans.

So try to get some audience in the social medias before seeking for record deals, it definitely very helpful in getting record deals because they are going to ask you about your social media’s visibility.

After applying some of this tips, then you can pitch some record labels in Nigeria if they didn’t show up. You can take your music to some of this record labels, and believe me you will be hit with recording contract very soon. Make sure you have a video before looking for a record deal, if you need a better result.
