It all good, most response are true while other are not. I will say in my own view what makes the Lagos Music Market so big is the fact that Lagos is a city that have large population and many entertainment centers like night clubs, venues, radio,tv station and all other media outlet. All this combined are also another factor.

Just like the Hollywood, Same right here.

Also music business entrepreneur find it easy to operate in Lagos because of the fact that many Major multi national companies operates in Lagos and when any event want to take place and sponsors are needed it is these companies that come in.

The points are just too many.

If not for shows, i wonder if the artist will be able to drive a decent car talk less of a hummer. Will the industry ever get its act together? will it ever put a functional distribution body in place?

I Really Wonder.

@Eastbay, well noted man, i agree Lagos is still da poo when it comes to music in Naija, but conquering Lagos music wise doesnt mean u've conquered the whole of Naija, i will give u an example, i shuttle regularly between Lagos and the East so i know wats happening, Apart from Tuface, D'banj,P square, 9ice, Faze, Ruggedman, who are A-list musicians,the other Lagos based musicians are not recognised in the East, people like Lord of Ajasa, A.Y.Com, Sheyman,Da GRIN,even Terry G doesnt hav a strong fan base in the East.Guys in the East feel Enugu based musicians like Slow DOGG, Desperate Chicks,FLAVOUR, etc, more than any upcoming Lagos artiste.So u see my point,

Simple.Because Lagos has the numbers. The population of Lagos exceeds Libya, the whole of Saudi Arabia and some 50 other countries around the world.

Oh my sweet lagos is the economic nerve of the largest black nation in the world.

Lagos is indeed the nations centre of Excellence, it is a place where dreams are realised, it is a city of intellectuals and the enlightened mind. It is the largest city in Nigeria and the 2nd largest (population) after cairo in Africa. Conquer lagos and you have conquered half of Nigeria.

Lagos is to Nigeria what New york is to the US , maybe that sums up the explanation.

Lagos is nigerias commercial capital.its just like asking why abuja has a large political market.if you notice after alaba ,lagos you'ld get iweka, onitsha and pound road, aba.not because they are 2nd and 3rd most populated but rather because they come directly behind lagos as important distribution centers.
