‘Music Week Africa Seeks To Explore Africa’s Music Landscape’- Audu Maikori

The recently staged Music Week Africa which saw the convergence of policy makers, lawyers, music technology and distribution startups, record label executives, media publishing houses, facility managers financial institutions artists, music fans and other stake holders in the music industry for the maiden edition of the music forum succinctly re-enforced the fact that music is now the focus of investors who continue to look away from oil and other industries.

According to Audu Maikori, founder cum CEO of Chocolate City Records and the brain behind the conference, "Music Week Africa seeks to explore the entire music landscape for Africa especially the creative, business, supporting technology, music policies, trends and growth sectors which are all covered by respective players in the music space across various countries in Africa.

"It also provides a business networking platform for musicians, professionals and other players in the music industry, brands as well as fans. Enlighten sector practitioners, investors, policy makers with relevant insights applicable to them." He said.

Professor Pat Utopia was also named as the Chairman of the Advisory Board of the bespoke conference which also hopes to create the setting for brand sponsors to access African and international audiences through a range of planned events.
