Nigerian Music Industry Raked in $51m in 2016


According to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC),  the Nigerian music industry generated over $51 million in 2016.

Finance & Technology Director MWA, Raoul Sawhney, said that it was possible that the industry made even more money than what was reported by Pwc.
He said that the auditing firm predicted that it was likely the industry would generate almost $240 million per annum in the coming years.
Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, Mr. Oscar Onyema in his speech at the Music Week Africa event said Nigeria’s entertainment and media market is the fastest-expanding major market globally.
He said by 2019, the market will be more than twice as big, with estimated total revenue of $8.1 billion.

“Less than a decade ago, the Nigerian airwaves were dominated by international songs, and most club DJs had to ensure that the majority of tracks on their playlists are foreign or risk the loss of their audience. More worrisome is the fact that Nigerian artists earned peanuts from royalty and performance. Today the story has all but changed. Our African grown music now dominate not only our clubs, music and TV stations but the airwaves of major African countries and the world at large.” Mr. Oscar Onyema

Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex. 
Alice now runs a maternal health center opened by Save the Children in her rural community. The children are a living testament to the impact Alice has had in Liberia.
