VIDEO: 9ice Clears The Air on Controversy with NotJustOk & Linda Ikeji

9ice NotJustOk Linda Ikeji

It's no secret that top-selling Indigenous act, 9ice had some issues with us (NotJustOk), Linda Ikeji, and the Nigerian blogosphere in general, over the last couple of years. Thankfully, we at NotJustOk and 9ice are now very much in sync, with the veteran act even going as far as recently granting us an exclusive interview (if you missed it, click to watch here and here).

Well, the folks at GoldMyne TV took it upon themselves to ask 9ice what had changed since his name has now resurfaced on NJO and LIB. Here's what the veteran had to say.

*O.O*

ah Baba Abolore is talking of the future's future....oriyen so how we wish. Minus i-tunes, actually the problem with selling digital music in Nigeria is co-operation among the people with common interests i.e Industry stakeholders. They never agree! Even when we find a way to monetize the tracks online, some other factions will form and try to get traction and visibility by giving it away for free or argue about the sharing formula...and guess where the general public will patronise. yeah the free stuff of course and It's back to start again. Spinlet struggles with this model till date. Unfortunately,… Read more »

Uncle LastManMurderer: How dey go dey go? I am beginning to think that you have a beef for VEC or perhaps his song posts slips through your eagle eyes. In recent times, i try to follow your post on his work, but i have been disappointed because i havent found any of your comment on his work, King Kong remix and no post from you yet you dropped an epistle on this post. Anyways, i am not vector's publicist neither does your comment change anything really.. Just passing by.

@theLASTMAN, you said it right, but the Abuja legislative have little say in this. it's PMAN (Performing Musicians Employers' Association Of Nigeria) that really needs to put their house in order if not musicians can't determine their own market. For instance, in the first 12 hours of Wizkid releasing is Album it was uploaded more than 14X on youtube and being deleted instantly, but later Wizkid gave up. and people started downloading the songs for free, and moreso to many artiste's album. i really pity nigeria musicians, they do more work but less pay. Thanked God for Endorsment helping some… Read more »

He has a good point but how many people wanna be paying 2 dollars for every song posted on NJO. I think that is what the album is there for. Singles on the other hand is a different story bcos that is how you promote your album and shows for fans to support.

I think the COSON and BON/IBAN issue has been positively resolved. And, with regards to monetization, I think the trick is to make the stuff relatively cheap to buy. For example, an album on the street goes for #250 (or less, I'm not very current) - about $2. Now, that album probably has a minimum of 10 tracks. Hence, it's basically #25 per track (ignoring the cost of printing the jacket, the CDs, etc). If the above is true, what's wrong with allowing snippets of singles to be played on sites like NJO and if you like the song and… Read more »

Or perhaps sites like NJO, Linda, tooXclusive can pay artistes some percentage of their ad revenues based on how many downloads a song gets

The story of Linda Ikeji, Nigeria’s most popular blogger, reveals which you can create a company, and so value and influence, from whatever you’re enthusiastic about; and even when controversy abounds, you can find many chances to do good. Whether you agree with her approaches and content or not, we have to give it to Linda, she engaged, has entertained, inspired and aroused Nigerians for 7 years doing what she loves . She's turned blogging into a profitable business and shows no sign of quitting.
