Do Nigerian Radio Stations Pay Musicians to Play Their Music?

Hello,

I was just wondering if radio stations like Cool FM and Ray Power have to pay to be able to plays the songs of our various local artists like 2Face Idibia, Styl Plus, and the numerous upcoming artists who need promotion.

Do the local radio stations get to play the songs for free in exchange for the promotion the song and artiste will get (which translates to greater CD sales and jam-packed concerts) or if they have to pay. If they have to pay for the rights to each song they play on air, who exactly do they have to pay to?

Thanks,

Seun.

Is there anywhere in the world that radio stations pay musicians to play their music? I think general musicians fight to get their music on air, and many times its for free. Thats why radios need adverts to make a profit
