The Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON), has commended the efforts by the management team of Sony Music Entertainment Africa, on their partnership in trying to work with the organization in strengthening the Nigerian music industry.

The delegation led by the Managing Director, Mr. Sean Watson met with the Chairman of COSON, Chief Tony Okoroji and the society's General Manager, Mr. Chinedu Chukwuji to discuss the landscape for the licensing of musical works and sound recordings in Nigeria.

Welcoming the delegation to the COSON office, Chief Okoroji said, 'At COSON, our mantra is 'Let the music pay' and this mantra provides the energy that drives everyone at COSON to do everything we can 24 hours every day to ensure that music is profitable for all those who invest their talent, ingenuity and financial resources to create and make available the music that the world enjoys.'

'By now, I believe that everyone in Nigeria knows that our commitment to making the music pay for all music stakeholders and our country is total. We are not apologetic for the energy and passion we dedicate to this cause because our success will result in more wealth for our nation and more jobs for the large number of unemployed young people in our country.'

Also, issues addressed were digital music exploitation and the best ways that both organizations can work together to harness the potentials of the digital age in music licensing and distribution.

Accompanying Mr. Watson from the South Africa based organization was Ms. Manusha Sarawan, Director, New Business/Legal and Business Affairs and Mr. Craig Brown, Director of Finance.

Sony Music Entertainment is home to international artistes like the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Celine Dion, Shakira, John Legend, Pitbull, Rita Ora, Avril Lavigne, Beyonce amongst others.
