Artiste lauds COSON over intellectual properties

11 September 2015, 11:16

Lagos -  An Artiste, Efa Iwara, popularly known as Efa, on Thursday commended the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) for making intellectual properties worthy and paying off.

Efa said in Lagos that there was hope to reap more from their works’ usage and payment.

"My revenue generation from radio and other air plays has been paid to me by COSON recently.

"It is not much, but it is better than nothing because the piracy issue still lingers and something drastic step should be taken about it.

"The Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN) is trying to do same in the area of royalties.

"I believe we can get more from our works,’’ Efa said.

He said that musicians should not only get something from performances and gate takings, but also in publishing of their works.

Efa urged collaboration between COSON, PMAN, music producers, marketers and other stakeholders, to determine how production could pay all the parties involved in the sector.

He lauded PMAN’s involvement of more companies in the right usage of codes for musical productions of Nigerian artistes, and for ensuring that their members were rewarded when their music were used.
