Hurray, here is good news for some Nigerian musicians who are members of the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON), as the organization is set to discuss modalities of how their royalties will be paid at the end of 2014.

The organization is set to hold a meeting with its members on Tuesday, December 16, 2014 at the Oranmiyan Hall, Lagos Airport Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, after which the distribution of the royalties will begin.

This would be the 4th time in a row since its approval in 2010 that COSON will live up to its mandate in ensuring that right owners are adequately compensated with what is their due.

Furthermore, in order to live up to its name, the music organization has recently been on the neck of some hotels across the country that plays its members songs without following the due process of the organization.
